Export services from HSBC help you get paid faster

As an exporter, you know global trade is the cornerstone of the world's evolving economy. You can benefit from HSBC's local knowledge and global experience as you navigate the unique cultural, social and economic conditions of today's international business climate.

With HSBC, you can pursue more control of your exports, improve cash flow and lower overseas risks. HSBC's trade specialists can also help you understand foreign regulatory challenges and better access emerging market risk, giving you the confidence you need to expand your business internationally.

Build your international sales with added payment assurance

Selling products globally can increase opportunities but the consequences can be unpredictable, especially in unfamiliar markets. With HSBC's Export Letter of Credit Solution, you benefit from greater visibility and control with access to a comprehensive suite of processing and payment services.

Standby Letter of Credit

To win business domestically and worldwide, transactions will vary and be unique to your business. For example, you may be asked to provide security so that your bid will be honored, or to submit a performance guarantee, or to arrange for a security deposit on your office space. With HSBC's Standby Letter of Credit, you can meet these requests and benefit from improved cash flow management and reduced risk.

This is the solution for you if you need to:

  • Support existing business and secure new deals while protecting your cash
  • Provide security that your bid will be honored
  • Submit a performance guarantee
  • Arrange for a security deposit on real estate

HSBC trade professionals will assist you in identifying the correct Standby Letter of Credit for your transaction.
