Standby Letter of Credit

The standby letter of credit is issued by banks or financial institutions. It is given to vouch on the integrity of the seller and purchaser, acting as an intermediary. It is a guarantee of payment issued by the bank on behalf of the client. The standby letter of credit is created as a sign of good faith in business transactions and it also acts as a proof of buyer’s credit quality.

Here in the sample provided below, a bank writes this letter to a financial organization regarding an individual’s standby credit application. Here the bank works as an intermediary between the two parties.
