Fifth Third Trade Services Limited

Reduce the cost of import letters of credit by having them issued by Fifth Third Trade Services Limited (FTTSL). FTTSL is a subsidiary of Fifth Third Bank chartered in Hong Kong for the sole purpose of issuing Letters of Credit for Fifth Third Bank customers. Since many goods imported into the United States using Letters of Credit originate in China and other Asian countries, having your letters of credit issued in China places the issuing bank in closer proximity to your suppliers, often reducing their costs.

Clients can request the issuance of a Letter of Credit by FTTSL through Fifth Third Global Trade DirectSM.
