A Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) is an irrevocable undertaking by the Royal Bank Pacific issued to a third-party beneficiary. The letter is issued on behalf of our customers as a promise to pay a specific sum of money if the customer fails to fulfill a contractual commitment with the third party.
The beneficiary needs to submit certain documents that must comply with all terms and conditions if the SBLC. This type of trade financing solution is widely used for existing business relationships where two parties have already developed a great trust level.
Since SBLCs are irrecoverable, these cannot be canceled or changed without the agreement of the applicant, beneficiary and the issuing bank. Beneficiary rests assured of receiving payment due to the creditworthiness of the issuing bank. SBLC is transferable if stipulated in the terms and conditions.
