International Trade Financing

First Hawaiian Bank is your trusted partner in helping you capitalize on overseas opportunities. Our Trade Finance team of professionals stands ready to serve you in your Commercial and Standby Letters of Credit needs.



Commercial Letters of Credit for Importers and Exporters
Whether you are importing or exporting, First Hawaiian Bank can help guide you through international transactions, including required documents and shipping and delivery details, terms of payments, and insurance coverage.

Standby Letters of Credit
A Standby Letter of Credit can facilitate the security of payment for goods or performance of services.

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.
