For 2009, Nedbank Capital’s Global Structured Trade and Commodity Finance team won an award as one of the “Global Trade Review Best Deals for 2009,” for the FirstCape Vineyards transaction. Nedbank Capital was mandated to arrange, underwrite and fund the total facility, which is uniquely structured to cater for the company’s needs and provides financing from the initial harvesting of the grapes up to where the bottled wine is delivered to export markets.
In 2010, the team was awarded a GTR Best Deals award for its Plexus Cotton Limited’s trade finance facility. The facility enabled Plexus Cotton, a world class cotton trader, to finance cotton purchases from their important Southern African supply markets in Malawi and Mozambique.

It is based at the Group’s head office in Sandton, Johannesburg, with large operational centres in Durban and Cape Town, as well as offices in London, Toronto, Namibia and Angola.
