Secure Your Letter of Credit (LC) Here!
Our Letter of Credit (LC) 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 Letter of Credit has been an important and most popular method of payment in International Trade. It is widely used for the International trading transaction. It is the most effective method to secure payment in an International trade transaction. A Letter of Credit looks for the interest of the parties, the seller and the buyer. In the global information age the nature of international commerce has changed, so has the transaction method. This study will relate the traditional law and practice of letter of credit with the global information age.
Letter of Credit (LC) 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.
You may not have the necessary collateral requirements or relationship with the bank to get a letter of credit—but we do.
You don’t have to leave deposits with your suppliers, since your letter of credit will be opened for the full amount of the transaction—so your cash is not tied up or at risk while your supplier can often borrow against a letter of credit.
You may significantly increase your ability to do business with companies outside the U.S. by bolstering your financial position with your suppliers.
You can build safeguards into the letter of credit, including inspection of the goods and quality control, and set production and delivery times. This gives you more quality control over your goods.
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.
