Uncommitted Framework Agreement

The desk may have at its disposal various unrelated trade finance facilities and decide to use these facilities for various aspects of its trade, which may be defined in its agreement with the Bank and deemed appropriate by the funder.

Unrelated entities may contribute to the provision of short-term financing to a firm or to borrowing without clear conditions or the possibility of extending the loan. A borrower may benefit from an un tied facility or an unsying line of credit to make seasonal fluctuations in turnover or short-term payment obligations (e.g.B. a repo).

The loan is suitable for established small businesses, with strong financial statements and a large down payment to minimize payment amounts and the total cost of credit.
