Business-to-business bartering company BarterTrust is relocating its headquarters from San Francisco to London. The company, which already operates in the US, Canada and Latin America, says it will transfer its headquarters to London as it expands internationally, seeing the UK as its gateway to Europe. The network is an international business exchange for companies to buy or sell products or services using a non-cash means of exchange. The key benefits of the BarterTrust Network, according to the company, is that it maximises revenue by reducing excess inventory or spare capacity, improves cashflow management and exposes companies to new customers and markets.

Clients will be offered fixed interest rates and will be able to spread the cost of equipment over its working life. The new division also plans to support businesses with existing equipment, enabling them to release capital tied up elsewhere.
