What we do
SBLC- Standby Letter of credit
The Standby Letter of Credit and Bank Guarantee is provided by our bank (as the provider) to the beneficiary’s account/bank and it is transmitted interbank only through SWIFT (MT760). During the lifespan of the instrument, the beneficiary may utilize it for the two main and popular purpose of credit enhancement (raise loan, enhance credit line) or as a payment guarantee (Trade positions of a buy and sell contract for good and/or services to be rendered). At the end of the tenure of the agreement that guided the issuance, the beneficiary is expected to return the bank guarantee to our issuing bank without encumbrances or liens and the beneficiary also has the obligation to indemnify us against any loss incurred against such instrument. In addition, the beneficiary also has the option of extending the contract because our collateral transfer agreement or Deed of agreement always comes with an option of rolls and extension of up to 5 years and in some cases 10 years depending on how strong the beneficiary is placed and our due diligence.

Monetization of bank instrument
All monetization ends up as a recourse loan. With our cash backed Bank Guarantee or Standby Letter of Credit, you are expected to get an 100% LTV because it is cash backed and not asset backed (which has so many variable that has to be considered before determining the LTV by the beneficiary/beneficiary bank of the receiver of such asset backed Bank Instrument), but no bank will give you a 100% LTV except you have an arrangement with them before approaching us for the Standby Letter of Credit or Bank Guarantee. But you can be rest assured to get a maximum value ranging from an 80% to 95% LTV on any Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) or Bank Guarantee (BG) issued by us. This basically equates to using the Standby Letter of Credit or Bank Guarantee as a collateral for a loan with your financial institution in simple terms.
In conflict to the point raised above, if you are using an intermediary for your monetization, some has structures in place for a fee or interest who can monetize your Standby Letter of Credit or Bank Guarantee for a non-recourse loan that they intend to personally guarantee. This is not a miracle, but with our experience in the industry, some of the power play monetizer have an exit in place that need a paper from a third party for them to enter into a trade that probably makes up to 400% on the paper. This gives them the play-ground to cover the interest on the credit line/recourse loan from the bank, pay you the LTV on the Standby Letter of Credit or Bank Guarantee and still make great profit. Unfortunately, it is not easy to come by such power players.
