FUNDING STRUCTURE:
This structure is for worldwide, profitable commercial projects with a requirement of $2M or more with no upper limit.
• 100% Loan to value.
• No prepayment penalty.
• No personal guarantees required.
• The costs to raise the bond must be available.
• For development projects, several years of interest payments are added and kept in a reserve fund thus adding collateral to the bond and ensuring the coupon is paid whilst the development occurs.

LOAN SECURITY: The security or guarantee depends on the type of project, the project location and also the loan amount requested. Several factors will determine what security we will demand from a borrower. Also, it is not a problem if the borrower does
not have any security or guarantee.

The security or guarantee that we need for our loan is for the borrower to secure the loan with either a bank guarantee (BG) or INSURANCE SURETY BOND. We are direct providers of loan and Letters of Credit so we will provide both BG and loan. There are certain cases we need just an insurance bond or insurance wrap but if the loan amount is big we will request for BG/SBLC. Whatever the case may be, we will be able to assist in procuring the Bank Instrument (BG/SBLC) or INSURANCE BOND. The insurance surety bond will come from any of the underwriters that we have good working relationships with. The requirement for either BG or Insurance Bond is mandatory and cannot be changed or altered for the security of our investment.

Once we know the loan amount, loan repayment duration, project description, project location etc we will then choose whether we will need a BG/SBLC or INSURANCE BOND for the transaction. The cost of BG/SBLC or Insurance Surety Bond will depend on the requested loan amount. If you tell me the project type, project location,requested loan amount and the loan repayment duration then I will be able to tell you the type of security that we need and the cost.

We are a legitimate firm so all payments are protected and guaranteed because we have a 100% refund policy. In the rare event if the loan is not approved or transferred we will return your insurance bond fee to you within 48 hours. I am mentioning the upfront fee payment now because I like to be straightforward and no surprises. This will also help you to know whether you want to continue or not to avoid waste of your time and ours. We are in this industry for a long time and from time to time we receive requests from people who claim that they need multi million dollar loans but do not want to pay any fees upfront.

They want the loan lender to deduct any expenses from the loan amount, so they can do a loan transaction for FREE, taking no risks and investing none of their own money. I am a seasoned banker and to be honest, those types of deals do not exist in the real world, if they did there won’t be any homeless person in the world today.

Some banks or lenders ask for different fees ranging from Due Diligence fee, processing fee, legal/attorney fee, loan registration fee, stamp duty etc. As you can see, every company or bank has their own company policy as well as different terms and conditions.
