Document Presentation & Payment
Expedite the preparation and presentation of your export documentation and accelerate collection of your receivables, settled on traditional letter of credit, private label letter of credit and open account terms. In addition, improve visibility to the entire order to cash process and mitigate foreign buyer risk.
Letter of Credit Confirmations
When Bank of America Merrill Lynch confirms a letter of credit issued by another bank, we add our credit standing to that of the issuing bank, guaranteeing payment to the seller if terms and conditions of the letter of credit have been fulfilled.
Turn receivables into cash with receivables finance from Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Our solutions can enable you to sell on both letter of credit and open account payment terms, reduce collection cycles, increase your access to liquidity and better manage your cash flow.
Structured Trade Finance
We work with export credit agencies and secondary market participants to tailor innovative solutions to meet your short- and medium-term export financing needs. Our creative structuring capabilities can help you offer attractive financing to overseas customers and significantly reduce non-payment risks. If you are a U.S.-based exporter, you may qualify for pre-export financing with a 90% guarantee by the Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-ImBank).
