    Why Use Collateral Transfer Facilities?

Why Use Collateral Transfer?

Entrepreneurs may choose to adopt Collateral Transfer facilities, commonly known as the ‘leasing’ of Bank Guarantees, as they often need to raise urgent business capital and do not always have adequate security to obtain it conventionally through standard commercial loans.

‘Sometimes, it is also required that investors need to raise large sums of capital to enter trade positions. They may choose to leverage their capital to access a higher level investment platform or to temporarily underpin larger deals such as buy and sell commodity contracts or for use as corporate surety.

Collateral Transfer, or the ‘leasing’ of Bank Guarantees, can be used for:

  • Raising Loans and Lines of Credit
  • Security for other credit facilities such as trade finance
  • Surety and other third party financial commitments
  • Trading and overdraft security

The key benefits as to why entrepreneurs choose to open Collateral Transfer facilities include:

  • As Security for short to mid-term loans
  • As Project Finance up to 5 years in term
  • For Property Construction
  • For Commodity contracts and buy/sell or sell/buy positions
  • For Trade programs and investment

In comparison to normal asset lending and project finance, Collateral Transfer may be an easy solution for borrowing large amounts of funds quickly and without the time-consuming need for extensive underwriting or credit searches.

These facilities suit financial requirements for terms under 5 years or where returns are high, allowing higher expenditure on annual rates. The longer the term, the less suited Collateral Transfer facilities are and therefore we discourage terms in excess of 5 years, although they are achievable.

Whilst therefore these types of facilities are not suited to long-term borrowings (5 years and over) due to the annual costs, they can be seen as a very quick and simple solution to short-term capital requirements.

Entrepreneurs may utilise these facilities to kick-start projects quickly and re-finance on longer term secured debt as the exit strategy for repayment at the end of the term.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak:

In light of the outbreak of the Coronavirus, we wish to assure all our clients and potential customers that we remain open for business as usual.

Given the travel restrictions being imposed against certain nations and restricted travel to and from Switzerland, we have implemented permissions from our sources and provider groups to conduct meetings over video links and to exchange legal documents via DHL and email. This process will remain in place during the travel restrictions and we would like to assure all existing clients, customers and new applicants that they should not experience any significant delays during this time.

Whilst Switzerland has now entered the removal stage of the lockdown procedure, we are deeply understating that many other countries are not yet at that position to do the same. As a result, we have implemented existing Swiss procedures to undertake our interviews, underwriting and identification procedures online - as many other dynamic Swiss Banks have been using for the last few years.

We are now adopting a remote underwriting mode.
