Thanks for your question and apologies for a delayed response.
Proof of funds ( ) refers to a document that signifies a person or an entity has the capability and funds accessible for a specific transaction. Proof of funds usually comes in the form of a bank, security, or custody statement. The purpose of the proof of funds document is to ensure that the funds needed to execute the transaction fully are available and legitimate.
A is commonly used when initiating commercial transactions between parties who do not know each other. The purchaser's bank produces evidence in a standard format that their client is good for a transaction up to the decided value, based on certain items, etc. Usually, such letters have to be produced/verified/confirmed by a class A international bank, as local banks do not have the status required by counter-party banks in other countries.
I hope this answer helps you with your future endeavors.
