Import Letters of Credit
We can substitute our credit for yours in cases of transactions, imports, and exports. Reduce your risk and delay payment until you receive documentation of shipment by the seller. Improve your company's cash flow by eliminating the need to make advance payments or deposits, ensure shipment was made on time and confirm necessary documents have been presented.
Export Letters of Credit
By relying on a bank's creditworthiness rather than the buyer's, you will dramatically decrease your financial risk. A letter of credit is a guarantee that you will be paid upon shipment and the presentation of complying documents.
Standby Letter of Credit
Enhance your ability to work with critical business partners by using a standby letter of credit. A Standby Letter of Credit (SLOC) will guarantee FNBO’s commitment of payment to a seller in the event that the buyer or client defaults on the agreement.
Documentary collections allow you to delay payments until the arrival of goods have been received and reduces the risk of selling on an open account. Documents flow through FNBO and your customer’s bank showing that delivery has occurred, then, FNBO will help facilitate the payment.
Global Risk Solutions
Exposure to Foreign Exchange (FX) can adversely impact your business in a variety of ways, including hidden risks that are often not detected until it’s too late. By leveraging FNBO’s global banking risk solutions, your business can better manage international cash flow while reducing the risk of currency value fluctuations. We work in a collaborative effort with your company to manage risk and establish a proactive plan.
Eliminate the risk of exchange rate volatility by purchasing or selling foreign currency at a fixed rate of exchange.
Forward contracts enable you to purchase or sell foreign currency at a fixed rate of exchange for delivery at a pre-determined future date. Forward contracts help eliminate the risk associated with exchange rates for the duration of the contract.
Reduce risks associated with currency fluctuations with multi-currency accounts. Available in various currencies, multi-currency accounts allow you access to an account denominated in a foreign currency.
