Case Studies

A large UK business had secured a new overseas supplier and required funding to support the import of the stock.

A letter of credit (LC) facility was agreed in favour of a Chinese supplier, which the supplier benefited from as he was able to use the LC to obtain cash flow funding to produce the stock under the contract.

The client was able to benefit from improved stock pricing whilst ensuring underlying cash flows were protected for day-to-day trading. This has led to more stock lines being sourced from the Chinese supplier.
