Foreign Exchange Services
Send and receive foreign currency wires with competitive rates.
Send checks in foreign currency drawn on foreign banks with your vendors. Or deposit your foreign currency drafts from your customers with Bridge Bank. We’ll convert them to USD and deposit them into your account.
Protect yourself from adverse foreign currency volatility by locking in exchange rates today for value at some future time.
Forward window contracts
Similar protection as a forward contract only more flexibility with the dates of settlement.
Non-deliverable forward (NDF)
Provides the same protection as forwards in markets that don’t have a freely traded currency, like the Taiwan Dollar, Korean Won, or Brazil Real to name a few.
Ex-Im Bank Working Capital Guarantee Loans
While most commonly used to support domestic lease obligations, standby’s can also be used to facilitate your international business for things like Performance Bonds or Bid Bonds.
Commercial letters of credit
A commercial letter of credit substitutes the credit rating of a bank with that of an importing party. If you are importing, Bridge Bank can open an import letter of credit for your customer. We also serve to negotiate or advise your export letters of credit.
Similar to a letter of credit, we can assist you with your documentary collection needs (documents against payment and documents against acceptance).
Export credit insurance
We can assist you in finding export trade credit insurance to protect against commercial and political risk.
Global Cash Management
Hold balances in some of the world’s most popular currencies, simplifying and allowing you to better manage foreign currency receivables and payables.
