Maximize Growth, Minimize Risk

Recognize sales growth opportunities with familiar trade partners and get sound advice from a banker with experience. Our specialists can assist your company in structuring a letter of credit that provides protection and satisfies the beneficiary’s requirements.

Export and Import Letters of Credit

Our specialists can help ensure your presentation is in compliance with letter of credit terms and conditions. Let us reduce the complexities of your import/export document transactions and facilitate the effecting and collection of payments with foreign banks. We can also confirm your letters of credit, eliminating foreign bank and country risk.

Standby Letters of Credit

International businesses may require a standby letter of credit as a bid bond, performance bond, or warranty bond to assure payment in the case of default or non-performance. Work with a financial partner that looks out for your best interests. We'll review a standby for accuracy or, if you must draw on it, we can assist with collection.

Documentary Collections

Are your sales to established customers in stable countries, or for small shipments? Documentary collections can be more reasonably priced than a letter of credit and they don't absorb credit lines. We offer online application service for outgoing collections to facilitate processing, reporting, and payment collection.
