Our services

Commercial Letters of Credit for Importers and Exporters

Whether you are importing or exporting goods, we can help guide you through international transactions, including required documents and shipping and delivery details, terms of payments, and insurance coverage.

Documentary Collections

We can help you expedite your international sales transaction by facilitating the collection of required documents. Fees for this service are lower, as this does not provide the payment guarantee feature of a Letter of Credit.

Standby Letters of Credit

Assure international sellers of your creditworthiness with a Standby Letter of Credit issued by First Hawaiian Bank. Letters of Credit guarantee payment for goods or services received and are often used when negotiating with foreign companies
