With over 100 years of history, BIC BRED Paris is fully dedicated to financing solutions for commodities trading, with a special focus on agricultural products.

From our head office in Paris, we finance our clients throughout their soft commodities supply chain, from origination to processing, distribution, storage and ultimately consumption. To achieve this goal, we offer a full range of trade finance products, from simple to highly complex.

Our model

In an increasingly standardised banking industry, our model breaks the mould with bespoke solutions and customised transactions.


Our customers (traders, producers, processors) benefit from fully-dedicated back and middle offices, based in Paris, which process all of the documentation on their behalf. This means our customers’ transactions are fast and reliable.

BIC BRED Paris also belong to the BRED Group, which enables it to offer bank risk, forex risk, interest rate risk and country risk management tools, among others.

This lean organisation is a guarantee of a personalised service based on quality, flexibility and security in the processing of client transactions, empowering our client companies to meet the unique requirements of commodities trading.
