Short-term trade finance

Payment security in short-term international trade

Do you import or export goods to a buyer abroad and want payment security? A letter of credit or a guarantee from the buyer's bank is a good way of doing this. With an export letter of credit, your business partner abroad receives the documents necessary for collection of the goods from his bank against payment of the agreed purchase price. As DZ BANK, we can confirm this export letter of credit for you, giving you greater payment security.

Have you agreed a period of grace with your customer? We are glad to offer you advance financing or forfaiting for this purpose and purchase your bills of exchange or credit-insured export receivables (supplier credits).

You can also agree a bank guarantee as security in the purchase contract. In this case, DZ BANK issues you a guarantee with the counter-liability of a foreign bank, which assures payment of the agreed purchase price.
