International Business

  • Count on us when you do business worldwide. We’ll help you with our expertise and experience in international foreign trade and foreign exchange dealing.

So you can tap international markets and use worldwide opportunities.

International markets open up new prospects and opportunities for your company. At the same time many factors, such as other laws, cultural differences or fluctuating currencies can decisively influence your business relationships and also your business result.

Commerzbank is one of the leading banks in German foreign trade and will help you to profit worldwide from the opportunities of international markets with expertise and experience.

Foreign payment transactions

As a company acting worldwide, profit from the international presence and extensive worldwide network of Commerzbank’s correspondent banks in foreign payment transactions. For example, if you open decentral accounts for subsidiaries and branches abroad and want to manage these centrally in order to optimise interest.

Documentary business

To smoothly process your export or import business we provide you with the right settlement and hedging instruments: letters of credit, collections, guarantees.

Alternatively, you could simply opt for our documentary service and let us complete the majority of your settlement activities for you. This offers many advantages: precisely calculable costs, high document quality, prevention of delays in payment or defaults, as well as optimisation of liquidity management.

Structured export and trade financing

As an exporter would you like to supply the financing too? Commerzbank offers you tailored solutions here, which ensure a quick flow of liquidity.

The spectrum ranges from classic buyer credits through various forfaiting possibilities – like Commerzbank buying letter of credit receivables – up to individually structured trade financing.

International locations

In international business a local personal contact is very important. You can reach Commerzbank abroad in more than 50 countries – e.g. in cities such as New York, London or Shanghai.

By the way: you’ll also meet German-speaking contacts with us abroad.
