Project- and Real Estate Financing

The term «Project Finance» (in a broad sense), comprises primarily the financing of complex and capital-intensive undertakings, particularly large-scale projects in the energy, engineering, telecommunications and transportation infrastructure sectors. The term " project finance" also applies to real estate and property financing.

Project finance is a cash flow-driven type of financing where the performance of the underlying project (whether it is in the planning stage, under construction or already in operation) is the primary source of funds for debt service.

Financing of holding companies with a pledge of unlisted shares in companies.

Structured Commodity Financing

Structured Commodity Financing (SCF) is a commodity-based financing technique which is specially designed for commodities manufacturers and trading companies in emerging and developed markets. Structured trade and commodity finance is defined as cross-border trade finance in emerging markets where the object is to repay the loan through the sale of commodities.

SCF plays an important role in providing liquidity management and risk mitigation for the production, purchase and sale of raw, semi-refined and semi-processed materials. By focusing on the individual transaction structure and the company’s ability to pay, as opposed to their balance sheet only, SCF provides an alternative and cost-effective financing tool for companies in the commodities sector, and to commodities manufacturers and trading companies doing business in developing markets

Working capital financing can take the form of:

  • prepayment — upfront payment to the client as consideration for future physical delivery of the commodities
  • postpayment — upfront delivery of commodities as consideration for future payments
  • inventory financing — analogous to a «repo» transaction for commodities, with the aim of creating short-term availability of working capital in exchange for the temporary sale of primary materials in advance of the production process
