International trade funding with IBB

How exactly do we define “international trade funding”?

Our specialty is transaction-related financing of German exports to so-called emerging markets – mainly in Africa and Asia, as well as elsewhere. We work closely together with the exporter’s sales department. Thus, we create the conditions in many cases for an export transaction to be carried out safely.

What is particularly important here?

In addition to the terms and conditions, speed is a significant factor. We need to and are able to react quickly. Presumably faster than many other banks. One important reason: As a medium-sized bank in the Würth Group, we speak and understand the language of our medium-sized customers – since it is our own.

What makes IBB particularly attractive for the customer

IBB is part of the German export industry simply by virtue of being part of a group – specializing in the small and medium-sized business sector. Therefore, we also offer solutions for smaller contract sizes. As a private bank, we follow the principle of “one face to the customer”: every customer is assigned a contact person for their projects who is always informed about the status of the project.

Are there any special features that distinguishes IBB?

Only very few banks go as far as IBB in accompanying the exporter and foreign importers. We mean that literally: if it’s beneficial, we’ll also be at the construction site in Thailand or the port in Egypt.

How much experience does IBB have in this area?

IBB itself has financed a countless number of international trade projects. However, a bank is only as good as its employees. Therefore, we put great emphasis on many years of personal experience. Some of our experts have been working in this industry for decades.
