Deutsche Bank has launched a web-based trade finance tool for trade guarantee management. The syndicated guarantee management tool allows companies, syndication banks, and agents to access information on guarantee transactions and capture instructions in real-time, and automate information transfer.
It includes extensive reporting functions, customization, and is fully integrated with Deutsche Bank’s other corporate client solutions.
This system was launched in parallel with the bank’s announcement of the first-ever corporate trade guarantee products under new guidelines for cross-border guarantees set out by the International Chamber of Commerce.
The guidelines should make it easier and safer for companies to use cross-border demand guarantees, rather than relying on standby letters of credit, for trade finance management.
