In order to finance and develop major commercial projects you will likely require sophisticated financial engineering techniques and CWC Gulf have developed some of the best in the business. For most investments this means a combination of equity and senior debt financing. For larger investments the financial institutions, investors and lenders will usually require mitigated risk dilution and this can be done by the provision of political and commercial risk underwriting. CWC Gulf are specialists in the structure and arrangement of innovative project finance solutions which are underwritten by bespoke insurance. We call it financial engineering.
Over the years we have worked with a number of financial institutions, investment banks and private equity funds. We also work with a number of high net worth private individual investors seeking to diversify their portfolios which invariably can provide the best solution and giving more flexibility for the smaller business.
Finding the right solution for your business takes skill, knowledge and patience. That is why our clients trust us to act for them in finding the right solution on the right terms.
There are a number of ways that project financing can be structured. In many parts of the Asian sub-continent they often refer to suppliers credit agreements. CWC Gulf have utilized BOT, BOOT, BLT and BLOT structures on projects for its clients as well as arranging the more traditional and straightforward equity/ debt approach. We have also developed strong relationships with Banks and Financial Institutions who will undertake syndicated lending.
CWC Gulf have also developed a unique and proven system of Project and Commercial Financing utilizing SBLC/ Bank Guarantee discounting. For Companies holding SBLC’s (Stand by Letters of Credit) issued by most secondary Banks or Central Banks in practically all Countries of the World, we have arrangements in place with our London and Dubai Bankers for discounting SBLC’s and providing clients with immediately available cash. The procedure sometimes referred to as Forfaiting (although our system is a modified extension of it) is most usually undertaken by entering a standard and optional revolving Project Finance agreement with CWC Gulf over one year and for any sum up to approximately US$100 million
Larger amounts may also be arranged under this scheme subject to the Bank’s Country capacities. If your Company has an SBLC and requires immediate cash financing then contact us now. We can help and in full compliance of International and UK Banking Regulations.
