Trade Finance & Trade Goods Payment Security Solutions


Secure Your Documentary Letter of Credit (DLC) Here!

Our Documentary Letter of Credit (DLC) is primarily issued by Bank Winter, a European Bank that was founded in 1892, was ranked 16th in the BIS ratio (The Banker) among the 1,000 largest banks worldwide and is one of the largest privately owned Merchant Banks in Europe who specialize in Trade Financing and Investment Banking.

The Standby Letter of Credit serves a different function than the commercial letter of credit or Documentary Letter of Credit (DLC).

Sellers/Exporters and Buyer/Importers usually require an intermediary such as a bank or financial institution to guarantee payment as well as the delivery of goods. This is where the Documentary Letter of Credit (DLC) comes in. A Documentary Letter of Credit (DLC) is a financial instrument, issued by banks or trade finance institutions through a SWIFT MT700 message, where seller/exporters receive payment from the buyer/importer, once the terms specified in the DLC are completely fulfilled.

Once the terms specified in the Documentary Letter of Credit (DLC) are fulfilled and the buyer/importer cannot pay, then seller/exporter can make a compliant document presentation to demand payment.

When the seller/exporter makes a compliant presentation, the issuing bank or financial institution will make a payment to the seller/exporter.


Documentary Letters of Credits (DLC) are mostly used in international business transactions, where the buyer/exporter and seller/importer have yet to build a close business relationship and/or are located in different countries. When closing a business deal with a buyer/importer in a foreign country, the seller/exporter is exposed to certain risks including international legal systems and a lack of trust with the buyer/importer.  


Due to this, a seller/exporter can be hesitant to do such a deal without a Documentary Letter of Credit (DLC) from a trusted credit-worthy bank or financial institution as financial security. 

Documentary Letter of Credit (DLC) Benefits

A letter of credit minimizes risk, maximizes control, and optimizes profits associated with international trade by making transactions simpler, smoother and safer for all sides.

Buyer Benefits

  • You may not have the necessary collateral requirements or relationship with the bank to get a letter of credit—but we do.

  • There is no need to leave a down payment or deposit with your seller/exporter since your Documentary Letter of Credit (DLC) will be opened for the entire amount of the contract.  This will free up capital in your business and will lower your risk in the transaction.  The seller/exporter can often borrow against the DLC to receive their money faster.​

  • You can protect yourself even further by adding safeguards into the Documentary Letter of Credit (DLC) including quality control, inspection of goods, and set delivery and production times.

  • You may open up all types of new opportunities to do business with foreign companies by strengthening your financial position with your seller/importers.

Seller Benefits

  • Payment is assured as long as you comply with the terms and conditions of the letter of credit.

  • The credit risk is transferred from the buyer to the issuing bank, which is obligated to pay even if the buyer goes bankrupt.

  • You have easier access to financing and are able to transfer all or part of the letter of credit to another party, e.g., to purchase raw materials.

  • Collection time is minimized, as the letter of credit accelerates payment of receivables, and foreign exchange risk is eliminated when it is issued in the currency of your country.

Brokers & Consultants

Unfortunately Trade Finance DLC, CLC, LC and SBLC are exempt and do not earn Broker Commissions. This is because Trade Finance deals have very small margins and tend to be smaller transactions between 200K and 3M.
