Exports

If your business trades overseas, our international expertise could give you an advantage. With offices in markets worldwide, our export collections and export letter of credit solutions could remove some of the risks associated with global payments while our export finance solutions could give you access to the working capital you need to fulfil your orders and help you offer more favourable terms to your trading partners. And our foreign exchange service can help keep your trades competitive and your payments secure.

Guarantees

Trading internationally without established relationships can feel like a leap of faith. That’s why we provide bank guarantees and standby letters of credit, so that both parties can trade with increased security and reduced risk. With an extensive range of guarantees available, we can provide added support and security to meet your import and export needs.
