Revolving lines of credit

Lines of credit can be used for a range of financing purposes, from liquidity management and portfolio leverage to debt refinancing and risk management. We can offer multi-currency lines of credit secured by cash, investments or by other forms of collateral, and can denominate loans and collateral in different currencies.

Committed loans and uncommitted term loans and lines of credit 

Credit facilities can be offered on both a committed and an uncommitted basis, with the former being more suited to longer-term arrangements and the latter to one-off or shorter-term needs and where the collateral is liquid. As with our other credit solutions, these are available in major currencies and can be secured by various types 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 other solutions, suitable collateral will be required, with an appropriately assigned lending value.

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.

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