Revolving lines of credit

Use revolving lines of credit for a range of financing purposes, from liquidity management and portfolio leverage to debt refinancing and risk management.1 We offer multi-currency lines of credit – secured by cash, investments or other forms of collateral.

Standby letters of credit and guarantees

In certain circumstances, we can offer standby letters of credit, which provide a bank guarantee of payment to a third party on your behalf. As with our other solutions, we require suitable collateral with an appropriately assigned lending value.

1 Leverage/gearing increases risks significantly. A relatively small market movement will have proportionally larger impact on the funds you have invested or may have to invest. Marked to market changes and a variety of factors can have significant adverse impact on the value of the investment. Losses related to such market movements may be greater in value than your investments and collateral provided. Standard margin top-up and sell-out rules will apply and you may be required at short notice to make additional margin deposits or liquidate your position at a significant loss and in such circumstances, there is a risk that you could lose all or part of your investment. Further, if you are asked to deposit additional margin, the amount requested can be substantial in poor market conditions adding liquidity pressure to your portfolio.

It is important to note that the capital value of, and income from, any investment may go down as well as up and you may not get back the full amount invested.

2 Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
