Trade Finance

Our alternative lending venue is available for all commodity trading purposes that involve Documentary Letter of Credit (DLC). It is quick and efficient when financing of a lucrative transaction but conventional bank loan seems to be difficult and subject to a lengthy process.

 

We finance your Commodity trade as follows:

Assuming you are engaged in commodity trade as follows:

 

You deal bulk commodity trading or valuable equipment that require Documentary Letter of Credit (DLC) for exchange

 

You have a direct end-buyer for the product and you can enter into a Purchase Agreement with your end-buyer

 

And you have a direct seller or manufacturer of the product and you can enter into a Sales Agreement with them

 

With this in place however, you may be short of funds or credit line to materialize such trade by yourself.

 

Under these circumstances, we can collaborate with you and issue the required DLC to your seller on your behalf based upon a Profit Sharing Scheme.

 

For further details, please contact us by email explaining the nature and volume of your commodity trade. We will be glad to discus and configure the trade with you in short time.

 

Letter of Credit Financing

Through our banking relationship and capable funders, we provide documentary letter of credit (DLC) at sight for a reasonable issuing fee for 30, 60 and 90 days. We use rated banks for issuing the DLCs.

BG & SBLC for Commodity Trading

Should the Importer require BG or SBLC for commodity trading, we work in close cooperation with several providers including financial service institutions that can issue bank guarantees and standby letters of credit (BG/SBLC).

Generally, we arrange the timely issuance of the following instruments at fairly reasonable fees:

  • Standby Letters of Credit

  • Bank Guarantees

  • Performance Guarantees

  • POF messages

 

We are responsive to our client’s queries. As soon as we receive the completed application form for issuance of an instrument, we promptly provide the initial draft (text verbiage) for approval by the client and/or its beneficiary. The time line for the whole process is usually not more than five banking days.

 

Please contact us for further information.

 

Monetizing Bank Instruments

In case you wish to acquire a BG or SBLC to be monetized, you must have unrestricted beneficiary ownership of the instrument for a 12-month term. The issuing bank shall have rating of at least BBB+ and the text of the BG or SBLC states that it is “transferable or assignable”.

With these conditions in place, we offer a loan to value (LTV) of at least 70%. 

If your bank cooperates, the process can be completed within 10 banking days.

Start with sending to us a brief application for a loan against your bank instrument along with your Client Information Sheet, copy of your passport, Certificate of Registration.

Monetization and Private Placement

We monetize your owned (not leased) bank instrument and put the cash into a trading program. A trading account can be opened for the Investor in the monetizing bank. If the bank instrument is issued by a major rated bank, the LTV is up to 70%.

 

This financial enhancement program pays high profit same day for capital of $/€ 100M+, repeatable three times with profit compounding. Program duration is only three to five weeks with entire payout at once.
