UOB (China) Trade Services deliver extensive solutions to companies engaged in international and domestic trade transactions. We offer a suite of trade settlement and finance solutions including Letters Of Credit, Documentary Collections, Banker's Guarantees, Standby Letters Of Credit and Bank Acceptance Draft.

You can obtain working capital financing on any underlying trade transaction. Where exporters undertake risks such as sovereign, cross-border and commercial risks, our extension of adding confirmation to your Export Letter of Credit will help you mitigate the risks of dealing with less familiar counterparties, financial institutions or higher risk countries. With the assurance of payment upon your fulfilment of underlying trade transaction and documentary requirements, you will now have the confidence to expand to new markets and focus on growing your business.

We can further enhance acceptability of your business propositions and financial obligations by our issuance of Banker's Guarantees, Standby Letters of Credit and Bank Acceptance Draft to back up your financial and performance obligations between your company and your counterparty.
