As a buyer or seller, where and who you are trading with have a significant impact on your banking requirements, as does your specific trade cycle. That’s why at Barclays our first step is to work closely with you to understand your entire business, and the role you want trading overseas to play within it.
Trading overseas can offer new opportunities for business growth. The risks involved, however, are always a key consideration, whether you’re planning on buying or selling overseas.
At Barclays, we offer a range of products and services that can help you mitigate these risks, such as Letters of Credit, Bonds and Collections, as well as supporting you in setting up international payment accounts if you are dealing with foreign currencies.
In addition, our experienced Relationship Directors and product specialists will take the time to understand your entire business in order to develop an end-to-end approach that could benefit you.
If you’re already buying and/or selling overseas, you may be considering new markets or ways to improve your trading operations.
Whether you are considering Supply Chain Finance, Open Letters of Credit or Trade Loans, you can benefit from the expertise of our Trade and Working Capital product specialists who will work with you to develop bespoke solutions based on your needs.
Our wider expertise will also support you in considering options to manage other risks, including foreign exchange exposure.
The products referred to in this webpage are subject to separate terms and conditions.
Find out more about trading overseas by talking to your Relationship Director.
