One bank for your international business

Do you export or import goods, do you have business operations abroad or ambitions for cross-border expansion? We can help you find the best solution, whether it is cash management, risk management, Trade Finance, or other international services. We have an extensive experience of international business.

International payments

There are many different ways to send and receive international payments. The method best suited to your company may depend on the type of business, in which country your counterparty is situated and how well you know them. Sometimes a regular cross-border payment may be adequate for your needs. Other times you may feel that a more secure Trade Finance solution is required. We will help you find the right solution.

Countries open for cross-border payments

the globe

Money laundering and other types of financial crime are growing problems in our society. As a bank, we both want and have to act responsibly. As per 1 October 2020, we are limiting the number of countries open for sending and receiving cross-border payments. This to protect both your company, and us, against financial crime.

You will still be able to send and receive cross-border payments to, and from, a large number of countries. However, to be able to send and receive cross-border payments, you need to contact your local branch office to complete the Bank's Know Your Customer (KYC) procedure.
