Bremer Bank Offers International Assistance to ND Exporters

At the 2011 Global Business Conference, Governor Jack Dalrymple presented Bremer Bank with North Dakota’s ‘2010 Service to Exporters Award’, an accolade given to the organization which demonstrates exceptional commitment to increasing the state’s international business.  Bremer’s international expertise, coupled with the small-town bank feeling created by a close network of regional offices, makes Bremer a great resource for North Dakota’s small-to-medium sized exporters.

Bremer Bank was founded in 1943 and since then has been providing a comprehensive range of banking, investment, trust and insurance products and services to nearly 100 locations in Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin. Today, Bremer employees are trained specifically to provide educational support and leadership to North Dakota exporters.

If your business is international, Bremer offers a comprehensive range of services to meet your needs.  These services include:

  • Letters of Credit
  • Documentary Collections
  • Foreign Exchange Services
  • Trade Finance
  • Pre-Export Working Capital Financing
  • Trade Credit (accounts receivable) Insurance

Bremer International’s partnerships with government entities, private insurance brokers/consultants, and international correspondent banks allow the company to offer the necessary expertise and solutions to meet the challenges in the global marketplace.

A large share of company profits are invested back into local communities through foundation grants. On average, Bremer Bank has given more than $27 million in grants annually over the last five years to help local nonprofits build healthy communities.  Additionally, Bremer routinely works to connect nonprofit companies and organizations with the U.S. Export-Import Bank, Minnesota Export Finance Authority, Commodity Credit Corporation and others.

The Bremer Bank website reiterates the companies dedication to regional exporters:

“If your mission spans the globe, there are times you need the expertise of international agencies and the support of global financial partners.  Bremer is ready to take action, with a complete portfolio of international services that support your global mission.”
