Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re in the financial industry or seeking financing options, you may have questions about SBLCs, BGs, and monetization. Here are some frequently asked questions and answers to help you understand these instruments and avoid fraud:

SBLC vs. BG: Understanding the Difference

  • SBLCs are typically used to support commercial transactions, while BGs are more commonly used as collateral for loans.
  • Payment: If you hold an SBLC, you can receive payment when you present a demand to the issuing bank. In contrast, with a BG, you can receive demand payment directly from the lender or the beneficiary.
  • Usage: If the primary payment method fails, an SBLC can be used as a secondary payment option. On the other hand, a BG guarantees that the borrower will fulfill their obligations.
  • Whether you have an SBLC or a BG, it is essential to be aware of the potential for fraud when monetizing these instruments. To avoid scams and ensure a smooth process, it’s recommended that you work with reputable and trustworthy monetization providers. Additionally, if you are considering using an SBLC as collateral for a loan, choose a lender who is familiar with the instrument and understands its value.

 

Monetizing SBLC and BG

Monetization is converting a financial instrument, like an SBLC or BG, into cash or credit. However, choosing a reliable and trustworthy monetizer is crucial to avoid scams and fraud.

There are several factors to consider when selecting a monetization provider, such as their reputation in the industry, their track record of successful transactions, and their willingness to provide references from past clients. It would help if you were wary of any monetizers who make promises that sound too good to be true or pressure you into making a decision quickly.

Before proceeding with any monetization deal, be sure to do your due diligence and thoroughly research the monetizer and their company. This can involve checking their credentials, reading reviews from past clients, and asking for copies of their licenses and certifications.

By finding a reputable and trustworthy monetizer, you can help ensure a successful and stress-free monetization process for your SBLC or BG.

 

Converting an MT760 to Cash

If you need to convert an MT760 to cash, you can do so by monetizing the instrument through a reputable and trustworthy monetization provider. It’s crucial to ensure the provider’s legitimacy to avoid falling prey to scams and fraud. MT760 is a message format typically used to send a guarantee or standby letter of credit. Monetizing this instrument involves converting it into cash or credit.

 

Loan Against SBLC

If you need financing but don’t have collateral to offer, using your SBLC as collateral for a loan can be an excellent option. By doing so, you can access the funds you need without touching your financial instrument. This type of loan benefits individuals or businesses looking to expand or invest in new opportunities. However, finding a trustworthy lender who can provide the loan terms that suit your needs is crucial. Make sure to compare offers and read the terms and conditions carefully before signing any agreement.

 

How to Verify an SBLC

Here are some steps you can take to verify an SBLC:

  1. Check the authenticity and creditworthiness of the issuing bank.
  2. Verify the language and format of the instrument.
  3. Check the authenticity of the signature and stamp on the SBLC.
  4. Ensure that the SBLC complies with the relevant laws and regulations.

It’s important to note that the verification process is critical to safeguarding your investment. While the suggested process is helpful, more is needed. Consider using a comprehensive verification process, which could include hiring a former FBI/CIA person to conduct due diligence, having a securities attorney read all of the required paperwork, and flying down to meet the issuer or monetizer. This way, you can be sure that you are dealing with a legitimate SBLC and not fall victim to any scams or fraud.

 

MT760 Frauds

When it comes to MT760s, scams, and frauds are rampant in the market, so it’s crucial to be careful. Choosing a reputable and trustworthy monetization provider with a proven track record is the best way to avoid fraud. Take the time to research the provider thoroughly and read reviews from past clients to ensure that you’re working with a legitimate company. Be bold and ask questions and verify their credentials to protect yourself from scams.

 

SBLC and BG Format

If you’re looking to understand the format of an SBLC or BG, it’s essential to know that the exact format can vary depending on the issuing bank and the transaction’s details. However, many banks use standardized templates for these instruments, such as the International Chamber of Commerce’s Uniform Rules for Demand Guarantees. By familiarizing yourself with these formats, you can better understand the terms and conditions of the instrument and ensure that everything is in order before proceeding with a transaction.

Essential Documentation For Us to Get Started

If you’re interested in purchasing or leasing an SBLC, some essential documents must be signed and completed before we can get started. These include:

  • AltFunds Global’s KYC (Know Your Client) Form: Along with a bank statement that is three days old, you’ll need to provide proof of funds of at least $1.5 million.
  • Mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement and Non-Circumvent Agreement (NDA/NCA): These agreements must be signed and completed to ensure the confidentiality of the transaction and to prevent circumvention of the parties involved.
  • Joint Venture Agreement: This agreement outlines the terms and conditions of the transaction and must be signed and completed by all parties involved.

Once you have completed and submitted these documents, we will review them to ensure everything is in order. After this, AltFunds Global or the law firms we work with will provide you with a Service Agreement. With these documents completed, we can begin issuing your SBLC.

Fees

When considering leasing or purchasing a banking instrument, you should know that the cost can vary depending on different factors, including the issuing bank’s credit quality, the instrument’s language, and the number of days it takes to issue the instrument. The costs can range from 4% up to 62%, depending on the purchase or lease, the size of the instrument, and the language used.

At AltFunds Global, we believe in cost transparency and strive to provide our clients with competitive and reasonable fees. Our fee structure is straightforward: 2.5% of the face value of the instrument for both leasing and purchasing, plus an additional 2.5% of the face value of the instrument if you require monetization services. Our fee structure is fair and reflects the value we provide to our clients.

When our clients do not have enough capital to cover the cost of the instrument (4%-62%), and we need to lock down our capital or the capital of our financial partners, our fee is 50% of the net proceeds. It is essential to note that we do not block our funds for any client, and this is only done on a case-by-case basis.

At AltFunds Global, we are committed to helping our clients achieve their financial goals by providing the highest level of service possible. We understand that every client’s needs are different, and our team is dedicated to finding the best solution for each unique situation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a Standby Letter of Credit and a Letter of Guarantee?

These financial instruments are used to guarantee payment to the beneficiary in case the applicant defaults on their payment obligations. However, there are some essential differences between these two instruments.

If you are engaged in international trade, an SBLC may be more relevant to you. It is issued by a bank on behalf of its client, the applicant, to guarantee payment to the seller if the buyer fails to fulfill their contractual obligations. This means that the bank promises to pay the beneficiary if the applicant defaults on their payment obligations. The beneficiary can present the SBLC to the bank for payment if the applicant fails to make payment as agreed.

On the other hand, an LG is a more general term used to refer to any guarantee given by one party to another. It is a promise by one party (usually a bank) to be responsible for the obligations of its client (the applicant) to a third party (the beneficiary). LGs can be used in various situations, such as construction contracts, performance bonds, or customs and tax guarantees.

Overall, while both instruments provide a form of guarantee, an SBLC is more specific to international trade and payment obligations, while an LG can be used in various situations where a third party requires assurance that an obligation will be fulfilled. If you are still determining which instrument is appropriate for your situation, contact AltFunds Global today to learn more about our services and how we can help you achieve your financial goals.
