Local Services for Foreign Investors

As a Santander Bank, N.A. (“Santander”) client who is planning to expand your business to the United States, Santander can offer you several products and services to make operating in the United States easier and more effective.

Access to Santander Bank

By establishing a company in the United States, you will have access to all of the resources that Santander offers local companies, plus the additional advantages that an international bank like the Santander Group provides to international companies. As a local company, you will be assigned to a Relationship Manager who will be your primary point of contact with Santander in the United States for any of your banking needs, including products and services such as Cash Management, Trade Finance, Foreign Exchange, or Credit.

For foreign companies

If you want to do business in the United States but you are not ready to establish a company here, Santander can also provide you with several products and services that will enable you to efficiently conduct business in the US.
As a foreign company, Santander can open local corporate bank accounts in the United States that you can fully manage from your home country either through Santander’s online banking platform, or through the phone. You may open the account without being physically present in the US, processing the opening with our International Desk specialists through the phone and email. For your convenience, Santander has customer service available in English and Spanish, and will accept corporate documentation in both languages

Payments and Accounts

You can use these local accounts to collect payments from the United States, to pay to your US suppliers, or as an investment for excess cash.

The Santander’s offer for non-resident accounts in the United States include:

  • Demand Deposit Account: It is the most basic operating account for your daily activity, used to make payments, collect receivables, send wire transfers, etc
  • Money Market Savings Account: It will provide you with interest at a competitive market rate
  • Automated Overnight Eurodollar Sweep Account: It will automatically invest collected funds above a pre-determined target balance in your operating account each night, and return invested funds plus earnings to your account the next morning.
