Outsource your export administration to us. Leave the complexities of international trade administration to us - and rest in the knowledge that we’ve got your Shari'a compliance covered, too.

We Provide

  • Export letters of credit advising

    In accordance with Islamic principles and drawing on our extensive network of global banking partners, we can receive and advise your Letters of Credit (LCs) directly, minimising turnaround time.

  • Export letters of credit confirming

    We help you minimise payment risk when working with a new buyer or market by way of confirmations to your LCs*, and can, if necessary, give you immediate Shari'a compliant funding (against credit-compliant documents) to tide you over.

    *Confirmations are issued on a case-by-case basis

  • Export collections

    We handle your export collections quickly and professionally in accordance with the International Chamber of Commerce Uniform Rules for Collections (URC), and with Shari'a law. We ensure that your payments are speedily processed upon completion of the trading cycle.

  • Pre-shipment financing

    Our Islamic pre-shipment finance can help you prepare for your shipment orders, with flexible tenors tailored around your payment receipts. We can also give you Shari'a compliant post-shipment financing whereby you can get the liquidity against the value of the invoices concerned.

  • Financing against Export documents (bills)

    NBF Islamic can finance your business for your invoice immediately upon shipment, against the appropriate export LCs and collections documents. We do this in line with Shari'a law principles and industry best practices, and base your payment tenors on the tenor of your export LCs and collection documents.
