Corporate Banking And Trade Finance 

Trade Finance
 
 
Import Financing (internally, known as Finimp): Financing to Brazilian companies for the import of goods in foreign currency, whereby the international supplier receives the payment on an agreed date. The importer will then have a longer period to pay for the goods and an increased cash flow flexibility. 
 
Import Credit Letter: A Letter of Credit is an undertaking of payment issued by the applicant on the importer's order with the purpose of ensuring payment to a beneficiary (exporter), provided that it presents all documents stipulated in the Letter of Credit and in accordance with the terms and conditions established therein.  
 
Letters of Credit may be either confirmed or unconfirmed. In case it is confirmed, the exporter requests confirmation of a Letter of Credit, generally to a third-party Bank, for the purpose of covering the commercial risk of the issuing Bank and the Brazilian political risk. Thus, payment is highly assured to exporter, despite the higher cost to the operation.  
 
 
Export Prepayment (internally, known as “PPE”): it consists of the prepayment of foreign currency resources obtained by the Branch or other financial institutions abroad to Brazilian exporters in the period prior to shipment of goods, in order to promote financing to production, storage and marketing. 
 
 
Export Discount: A form of discount for securities representing exports, through which, with the intermediation of the Branch, exporters may sell their goods or provide services in instalments and receive payments in full.  
 
 
Import Discount: The Import Withdrawal Discount consists of a financing to the importer through a discount on Promissory Notes or Time Drafts in favor of exporters outside Brazil and without right of return.
 
 
Loans
 
Bilateral loan (internally, known as Loan 4131): it consists in loans in foreign currency or in national currency (BRL) which are not linked to “trade finance” operations, granted to non-financial corporations or banks, both located abroad, with the main purpose of working capital.  
 
Bilateral loan to finance Brazilian exports (internally, known as Finex): it allows the company to borrow a loan based on Law 4131/62 and apply it exclusively to the production of goods and services for export.  
 
Offshore loan: Foreign currency loan granted by the Branch to branches or subsidiaries of Brazilian companies (parent companies) incorporated outside Brazil, with the purpose of financing imports, exports of offshore companies or working capital.  
 
Syndicated loan: is usually a multi-lender transaction, where lenders (usually banks but sometimes including non-bank investors) contract with a borrower to provide a loan on common terms and conditions governed by a common document (or sets of documents).  


Deposits  
 
Term Deposit: transaction in which the customer deposits funds with the Branch in exchange for remuneration, for a fixed period. Product offered to wholesale customers only.
  
 
International Cash Management 
 
Current account: offered to Brazilian companies active in the international trade, as well as branches and subsidiaries of Brazilian companies seeking for funding in the international markets.  
 
Current account customers can receive funds resulting from incoming payments in such accounts and initiate outgoing payments from such accounts, including:  
 
 
1. Internal transfers between accounts of the same customer held with the Bank or the Brazilian Head Office of Banco Santander (Brasil) S.A.  
 
2. Internal transfers between different customers’ accounts held with the Bank or the Head Office.

The following entities may receive your data:  
 
      • Other departments of the Bank and/or Banco Santander Group companies that process your personal data for credit assessment purposes, for outsourcing purposes, for establishing the business relationship with you and complying with our legal and regulatory obligations (e.g. customer due diligence, prevention of financial crimes such as money laundering, terrorist financing and market abuse, provision of banking and investment services and marketing, where applicable; 
      • Processors (i.e. service providers) appointed by us, that process your personal data on our instructions;

5. How long will we keep your data?  
 
As far as necessary, we will keep your data for the duration of our business relationship, which includes the preparation and signing of a contract.  
 
In addition, we are subject to various retention and documentation obligations, which inter alia follow from the commercial code (Code de Commerce) and from anti-money laundering laws. The retention periods provided by those laws vary from five to ten years.  
 
Without prejudice to the above, Personal Data may be retained for as long as we have a legal or regulatory obligation to keep the Personal Data, or a legitimate interest to keep the Personal Data where required to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights. 
 
6. Where is personal data transferred?  
 
For the purposes listed above, your personal data will be transferred to any of the aforementioned recipients and service providers which may be located in countries outside of the European Economic Area (the EEA).  
 
Certain countries in which recipients and data processors may be located and to which personal data may be transferred may not have the same level of protection of personal data as the one afforded in the EEA. Personal Data transferred to countries outside of the EEA will be protected by appropriate safeguards such as standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission and you may obtain a copy of such safeguards by contacting us at the contact details set out in section 1 above.  

 
7. Do I have the obligation to provide the data?  
 
In the context of our business relationship, you only have to provide those personal data that are necessary for the formation, performance, and termination of a business relationship or that we are required by law to collect from you.  
 
Without this data, we will generally refuse to sign or to perform the contract, or stop performing or, where appropriate, terminate an existing contract. In particular, anti-money laundering laws require us, before entering into a business relationship with you, to identify you, for example by demanding your identity card, your name, date of birth, place of birth, nationality and official residence. In order for us to comply with those legal requirements, you have to provide us, with the necessary information and documents and to inform us immediately of any subsequent change. We cannot enter into the desired business relationship with you, if you do not provide us with the necessary information and documents.  

 
8. To what extent is my data going to be used for profiling?  
 
We process your data partly by automated means in order to evaluate certain personal aspects (so called “profiling”). We use profiling in the following case: by virtue of statutory and regulatory requirements, we are obliged to take part in the fight against money laundering, economic crime and terrorist financing. For that purpose, we also analyse your data (inter alia your transactions). These measures are also for your own protection. 

 
9. What are my rights?  
 
Right to information, rectification, erasure and restriction of processing  
Right to object  
 
You may object to processing of your personal data which is based on the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. In such a case we will no longer process your personal data unless we have compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
