By far the most widely utilised instrument in trade, a Letter of Credit is considered a primary option, in terms of payment.

Letters of Credit are often essential to both scaling businesses and for expanding and maintaining the smooth flow of trade; and are ideal due to the lesser number of conditions placed on their use.


As such, LOCs are a very useful tool in the commercial arsenal, and can be seen as the oil within the machine.

As long as track record, good credit, and appropriate scaling plans are available, an LOC can be ideal to help your business grow.


Carter & Co. utilise market leading partners to deliver on your business financing and trading needs, with solid track record, and integrity, to provide the right funding lines for your organisation.

If you require a Letter of Credit, then please do get in touch to arrange an informal and discreet discussion.

Similar to a Letter of Credit, an SBLC is a secondary payment instrument, as the name suggests. It is an instrument that is held on standby in case the primary form of payment fails.

There are important distinctions however, and although both LOCs and SBLCs have their place in facilitating the security and comfort required in both domestic and international trade, the Standby Letter of Credit is often more expensive to obtain, as it is there to guarantee payment if anything goes wrong.

As such, SBLCs are often employed to give comfort to longer term trade, such as ongoing projects or contracts.


They usually have more conditions attached in terms of their scope of use, and require collateral to be provided to the issuing bank.
