  3. WHAT IS A STANDBY LETTER OF CREDIT (SBLC) & MEDIUM TERM NOTE A Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) is a financial instrument issued by a bank on behalf of its customer. It serves as a guarantee that the customer will fulfill a contractual obligation to a third party. The bank promises to pay a certain amount of money to the third party if the customer fails to fulfill their contractual obligation. SBLCs are often used in international trade transactions and can provide assurance to the buyer or seller that they will be compensated in case the other party fails to perform their part of the deal. A Medium Term Note (MTN) is a type of debt security that is issued by a company or government for a period of 5 to 10 years. They are similar to bonds, but unlike bonds, they are not traded on an exchange. Instead, they are sold directly to investors by the issuer or through an underwriter. MTNs are typically issued to raise capital for long-term projects, such as infrastructure development or research and development.
  4. HOW SBLCS & MEDIUM TERM NOTE (MTN BENEFIT INTERNATIONAL TRADE SBLCs provide a level of security for both parties involved in the transaction. The seller is assured of payment, and the buyer is assured that they will receive the goods or services they have paid for. MTNs can provide the necessary funds for a company to finance a large international trade deal, such as importing or exporting goods. This can help to facilitate trade and increase economic growth. By using SBLCs and MTNs, companies can reduce the risk of non-payment and other financial risks associated with international trade. This can help to build trust between trading partners and encourage more cross-border trade. SBLCs and Medium Term Note can also be used to hedge against currency risks. For example, a company may issue an MTN denominated in the currency of the country they are exporting to, reducing the risk of currency fluctuations. Overall, the use of SBLCs and MTNs can help to facilitate international trade by providing security, financing, and risk management tools for companies engaged in cross-border transactions.
  5. 5 WAYS IN WHICH SBLCS CAN BENEFIT EXPORTERS AND IMPORTERS Risk mitigation: SBLCs provide assurance to the exporter that they will be paid for their goods or services, and to the importer that they will receive the goods or services they have paid for. This can help to mitigate the risk of non-payment or other financial risks associated with international trade. Improved negotiating power: When negotiating a trade deal, an exporter can use an SBLC to provide additional security to the importer. This can help to strengthen the exporter's negotiating power and potentially lead to better trade terms. Reduced costs: By providing assurance to both parties, SBLCs can help to reduce transaction costs associated with international trade. This can include lower financing costs, reduced legal fees, and lower insurance premiums. Increased access to financing: SBLCs can be used as collateral to secure financing from banks and other financial institutions. This can help to increase the availability of financing for both exporters and importers. Greater flexibility: SBLCs can be tailored to meet the specific needs of the parties involved in the trade transaction. This can include customizing the terms and conditions of the SBLC to reflect the unique requirements of the trade deal. Overall, SBLCs can provide significant benefits to exporters and importers by mitigating risks, improving negotiating power, reducing costs, increasing access to financing, and providing greater flexibility in trade transactions.

The customer must provide documentation, such as financial statements and trade documents, and meet the bank's credit requirements. Once approved, the bank will issue the SBLC, which can be used as collateral to secure financing or provide assurance to a trading partner in an international trade transaction.
