Securities Financing

What can a bank instrument be used for?

Bank instruments can significantly improve your chances of getting a loan from your bank. The instrument can thereby be used as collateral for your bank.
Through our partners, we can provide you with bank instruments that are 100% cash-secure.
Only instruments of the top 25 banks worldwide are offered, e.g. from HSBC, Deutsche Bank and UBS. This significantly increases the acceptance of these bank instruments.

All instruments rented through our provider are available, assignable, transferable and attachable.

Securing a commodity trade, combined with the instrument payment, by the expected profit of the transaction is not possible. But with proper use and payment, the different instruments offer many lucrative options. We can, for example, Provide BGs, MTNs, BONDs, SBLCs, and CDs that can be blocked or delivered via SWIFT.


To successfully apply for a standby letter of credit (SBLC), there are four important points to consider:

  • You need to have a promising project
  • You must have a bank that will finance your project based on the supporting collateral of a leasing instrument.
  • You must have the money to pay for the leasing of the instrument. You may also have to pay intermediaries if they are involved in the transaction. However, we are paid by the provider, not by you.
  • You need to have a credible and realistic exit strategy to repay the loan and return the instrument at the end of its life cycle.
