Trade Finance

Bank GPB (JSC) offers a wide range of Trade Finance products for corporate customers.

At the request of its customers, Gazprombank issues LCs in favor of their foreign counterparties and arranges for confirmation of the abovementioned LCs by its correspondent banks acceptable to the beneficiaries;
  • Short- and medium-term financing of customers’ imports by extending deferred payment under import LCs. Gazprombank issues LCs on behalf of its customers and pays to Beneficiaries in accordance with the terms of the LC against presentation of documents at its own expense, granting a period of deferred payment to the customers..;

Products for exporters:

Transactions are executed within credit limits set by Gazprombank for issuing banks.

The above mentioned operations may be structured with the borrower’s direct risk as well as using official export support structures. Such instruments of government export support often make it possible for Gazprombank to offer more competitive pricing terms and longer financing tenors, in particular for exports of Russian goods and services to emerging markets.
