Financial Institutions Products
Letters of Credit (LC) Confirmation
A standard trade product to cater to the needs of UAE based exporters who do not have relationships with Financial Institutions in foreign countries.
By confirming the LC, Noor Islamic Bank assumes responsibility to make payment to the Exporter against the LC subject to acceptance by the issuing bank.
Back to Back LC Issuance
LCs are opened by Noor Islamic Bank against Master LCs received from other Financial Institutions. Terms and conditions of re-issued LCs may vary or be same as the Master LC received from other bank.
Back-to-Back LC Financing
This innovative product is an extension of Back to Back LC Issuance that facilitates our local exporters by providing them quick liquidity while they export on usance basis.
Noor Islamic Bank issues a Sight LC in favour of the beneficiary against a Usance Master LC and disburses funds to the beneficiary on sight basis as soon as confirmation on the Master LC is received.
Issuance of Guarantee against Counter-guarantee
Guarantees are issued in favour of local counterparties against counter-guarantees issued by Foreign Financial Institutions with whom Noor Islamic Bank has a relationship. These guarantees include, but are not limited to Advance Payment Guarantees, Bid Bonds, Performance Bonds and other guarantees to various government and non-government organizations.
