Structured Trade

Scotiabank’s creative financing solutions are individually designed and tailored to support your import and export sales.

We offer short-term, medium-term, and long-term financing that can be structured as buyer’s credit or supplier’s credit/receivables purchase facilities.

Scotiabank uses risk mitigation tools and techniques to minimise foreign exposure while supporting your cross-border sales. Some of our risk-mitigation approaches include:

Export Credit Agencies and Multi-lateral Agencies:

Access export credit programmes available from major export credit agencies such as US EX-IM, EDC, ECGD, JBIC, COFACE, CESCE, EKN, Hermes, and SACE.

Acquire project and investment guarantees from multi-lateral and bi-lateral agencies, including MIGA, IFC, IDB, ADB, DEG, FMO, and CDB.

Private Insurance:

Using insurance policies to mitigate cross-border credit and/or political risks.


Buying and selling credit exposure in the secondary market - typically by way of non-recourse purchases/sales.
