Exports

Gain more control over exports, improve cashflow and manage risks associated with international trade more effectively using HSBC’s export finance facilities. With a significant presence in local markets around the world, our trade specialists have the in-depth knowledge to help you assess emerging market risks and give you the confidence you need to expand your business internationally. This includes helping you understand the regulatory environment as well as unique cultural, social and economic conditions when exploring new markets.

Liquidity, liability and investments

Increase the efficiency of your operations by managing cash on a portfolio basis across more than 50 markets around the world. With HSBC’s global liquidity solutions you will have access to a range of self-funding, deposit and investment techniques. HSBC’s liquidity solutions will be tailored and restricted to be fully compliant with local market regulations that may limit or restrict the availability of some of the services described below. HSBC’s approach combines a high level of consistent service and information, which enables us to configure our services to integrate easily with your organisation’s existing ERP and treasury management systems, as well as your key processes such as payable and receivables.

Imports

Access the working capital you need and improve cash flow by bridging the gap between settlement with suppliers and payment from buyers, putting you in the position to negotiate better prices. Our import finance solutions offer flexible financing options, fixed or variable repayments and a drawdown process on individual transactions to qualified importers. This is combined with our international trade expertise, which enables us to design a structure to suit your specific trading cycle.

Receivables finance

Improve your cash flows and enhance forecasting. If qualified, access up to 90 per cent of invoice values as soon as they are issued. Receivables finance is available in most major currencies and as early as the next business day. You can release cash previously caught in the sales cycle to cover day-to-day expenses or pay suppliers faster thereby negotiating more favourable rates and terms. With the flexibility to access the entire amount available or draw down only what you need, receivables finance is also an effective strategy for self-funding growth.

Guarantees

Conduct business with confidence, even where you lack established relationships, through the use of guarantees and standby letters of credit. An HSBC guarantee could enable you to negotiate favourable terms with buyers and suppliers by protecting them from non-performance under a contract while addressing your financing needs. HSBC offers tailored solutions including performance, advance payment, tender, warranty, financial guarantees and standby letters of credit as well as others upon request.
