Provide bank instrument monetization

In order to monetize an SBLC (SBLC Discounting/Financing) you must own or lease an SBLC Instrument through an Issuer bank or have access to a Guarantee bond from rated bank.

Helios HICL Securities Limited has developed relationships over the years with top rated AA+ banks globally to monetize bank instruments for clients by arranging the monetisation against owned bank instruments such as BG (Bank Guarantees), LOC (Letter of Credit), SBLC (Standby Letter of Credit), CD’s (Certificate of Deposit), DPLC (Direct Pay Letter of Credit) and other banking and financial instruments.

This form of financing can be used in combination with a cash backed Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) or Bank Guarantee (BG) Program in order to monetize the newly created document to obtain the right funds for project financing.

Monetizing bank instruments is the process of liquidating such instruments by converting them into legal tender. We can monetize or lend on just about any bank instrument to be used for project funding, move them into various trading platforms quickly and easily, as well as creatively incorporating them into financing certain development projects. We can monetize SBLC, LC, BG and MTN’s. This can be accomplished in say, 7-10 working days.

Monetising an SBLC or Standby Letter of Credit is becoming rather common and can be done in as little as 7-10 working days.  Many people refer to this as SBLC funding or SBLC financing since you are essentially obtaining cash on the basis of the SBLC or Bank Guarantee.

This process allows you to:

I.            Monetize instruments for cash

II.            Monetize instruments for buy/sell platform entry

III.            Monetize instruments for both cash and buy/sell platform entry
