Trade with Ease

Letters of Credit/Collections

A letter of credit (LC) is an agreement that is irrevocable and thereby constitutes a definite undertaking of an issuing bank to honour payments requested by customers to exporters.

Bank Guarantee

A bank guarantee is an assurance that a bank provides to a contract between two external parties, a buyer and a seller, or in relation to the guarantee. It acts as security for tender, performance and execution of payment contracts.

Invoice/Cheque discounting

Invoice discounting is an invoice finance facility when a company’s unpaid accounts receivable is used as collateral for a loan. Invoice discounting  companies enable businesses to leverage the value of their sales ledger.
