We Monetize Bank Instruments (BGs, SBLCs, and MTNs – We Have All Financial Instruments)

We have developed relationships with some of the highest rated banks in the world to Monetize Bank Instruments for our clients by arranging the monetization against owned bank instruments such as BG’s (Bank Guarantees), SBLC’s (Standby Letter of Credit), MTN’s along with other banking and financial instruments.

To monetize a bank instrument you must be in possession of the SBLC, MTN or BG and it must be paid for prior to requesting monetization.

If you do not own an instrument we can make arrangements for you to purchase one.

Monetizing bank instruments is the process of liquidating bank instruments by converting them into cash. We can monetize just about any bank instrument to be used for project funding, move them into various trading platforms quickly and easily. We can monetize SBLC’s, BG’s and MTN’s.

Monetizing a SBLC or stand by letter of credit is becoming rather common and has been used regularly since the late 40’s. Many refer to this as SBLC funding or SBLC financing since you are essentially obtaining cash on the basis of the SBLC or bank guarantee.

This process allows you to:

Monetize instruments for cash.

Monetize instruments for buy/sell platform entry.

Monetize instruments for both cash and buy/sell platform entry. 

If you need Loan, project financing, Bank Guarantees, SBLC, DLC or Letters of Credit kindly contact us immediately for more detailed information.

BANK GUARANTEE WARNING: 5 Ways to Lose Money – Beware!

IMPORTANT BANK GUARANTEE WARNING: 5 Ways to Lose Money – Beware! Too many clients have lost too much money in the Bank Guarantee industry by foolishly and naively being conned by unscrupulous people. Clients get lured by the promise of high returns and because of inexperience get caught in some pretty nasty pit falls and lose their money. This article is written to warn and educate clients so they can AVOID LOSING MONEY and SAFELY COMPLETE BANK GUARANTEE TRANSACTIONS WITHOUT LOSING YOUR SHIRT!

Many of our clients wish to purchase Bank Guarantees for Monetization, Discounting or Funding. If you do this it is CRITICAL you get it right! There is no margin for error when your dealing with millions if dollars!

There are some big traps uninformed customers fall into that cost them a lot of money or the whole deal. Loan and Investments Limited would like to partner with you and help you navigate the mine field of the bank guarantee market so you can safely and successfully get deals completed.

Here are just a few Mistakes people make….. that have Cost foolish investors many many $$$$


Mistake 1: Buying a BG that is Neutered – Some sneaky companies issue neutered Bank Guarantees. That is a Bank Guarantee that can only be used for credit enhancement on a companies books but can never be monetized or traded. It’s a nasty surprise you get when you realize your pristine Bank Guarantee delivered by MT760 to your Monetizer is……. useless!

Mistake 2: Buying a BG that is Leased – Many Leased Bank Guarantees cannot be monetized. If you buy a Bank Guarantee that has the word “leased” in the Bank Guarantee text when it is delivered to the funder or monetizer. You just got screwed and have a worthless piece of paper you can’t use! Loan and Investments Ltd offers you “unrestricted beneficiary ownership of the Bank Guarantee for a 12 month term” this gives you full monetization capability at the price of a lease. Don’t risk playing with fire, a cheap Bank Guarantee provider is likely to make you pay one way or another in the end! Play safe get a Bank Guarantee from Loan and Investments Ltd.

Mistake 3: Procedures DON’T Match – If the delivery procedures of the Bank Guarantee issuer don’t exactly match with the Bank Guarantee Monetizer, Funder or Discounter you will never get the Bank Guarantee delivered because the two parties are incompatible with each other. You just can’t put a round peg in a square hole! In our experience up to 40% of Bank Guarantee deliveries to funders FAIL because the procedures between the parties are incompatible. It is sickening to see clients with failed transactions caught in a blame game of table tennis between Bank Guarantee Issuer and Bank Guarantee Funder who each point the finger at one another. Avoid this nightmare, just use our prestructured, prenegotiated Managed Bank Guarantee Program. Email us for more details.

Mistake 4: The No Bank Play – When your Bank Guarantee Issuing Agreement with you lists them sending a MT999 or MT799 from a non bank entity to the monetizers or funder bank entity. You’ve been screwed! This is a huge scam because many Bank Guarantee Issuers issue from non bank entities that have names that sound like banks but aren’t! Authentic Banks will not reply or communicate with Non Banks Entities or private companies that send the bank messages on the SWIFT network. ThLease SBLC Upset Businessmanose messages are treated like an annoying mosquito, it buzzes into the bank on the SWIFT network and is swatted away to the rubbish bin as soon as the bank realizes it was sent from a non bank entity!

The Bank Guarantee Issuer then claims they delivered service to the bank and that because the bank did not perform or respond, then the Bank Guarantee Issuer keeps all your money because they claim the bank defaulted on your contract. Ouch!

Mistake 5: No CUSIP or ISIN Number – Some Bank Guarantee monetizers or funders will only accept Bank Guarantees with CUSIP or ISIN Numbers. This means they will NOT accept a fresh cut bank guarantee, ONLY seasoned instruments (which is a Bank Guarantee that has been created by one Bank and issued to a second bank who them registers the CUSIP and ISIN numbers of the instrument). Seasoned Bank Guarantees cost more because they have to be passed through two banks to become seasoned and are generally are only available to be purchased from secondary owners not direct from the Bank Guarantee Issuing Bank. We monetize fresh cut and seasoned instruments, as long as the bank guarantee is 100% real we will monetize it and ensure you bank cash no matter whether its fresh cut or seasoned.

The above Mistakes are the Tip of the Iceberg!

There are many many more!

How to cope in volatile markets

Turbulence in asset prices can be unsettling for investors. A diversified portfolio and a focus on the long term are better defences than trying to time the market.

Periods of high volatility can be unnerving. We’re told that long-term returns are the only thing that matters, but it’s difficult to remain calm when our investments’ short-term performance looks bad.

Stock markets worldwide have been more volatile this year, but investors have suffered from particularly painful falls in share prices in recent weeks.

The recent turmoil in global financial markets was triggered by data suggesting weaker economic growth in China, the world’s second largest economy, following a surprise devaluation of its currency earlier this month.

Chinese stock markets suffered some of the biggest declines in share prices, adding to the significant sell-off that began in June. However, fears about the wider implications for the global economy, including companies that sell goods and services in China, led share prices to tumble around the world.

As a result, the FTSE 100 index of British shares dropped to below 6,000 at one point, having surpassed 7,000 earlier in the year, while commodities markets, which are heavily dependent on demand from China, also fell heavily.

Some investors fear a weaker Chinese Yuan could lead to the spread of deflation, or falling prices, across the developed world. Falling asset prices are worrying because it can depress consumer spending and proves painful for debtors. They see the cost of their borrowing rise in real terms.

Following weeks of volatility, the Chinese authorities stepped up support for share prices with a series of measures, including cutting its benchmark one-year lending rate by 25 basis points to 4.6% and the one-year deposit rate by 25 basis points to 1.75%. The moves have led stock markets around the world to rally, recovering some of their losses.

But a broader reason for the turmoil could be worries about an impending increase in interest rates by the US Federal Reserve. Central banks in both the US and the UK are moving to normalise monetary policy, ending a period of record-low interest rates and quantitative easing (QE) that has resulted in unusually calm bond markets and rising share prices. This has pushed up the cost of equities around the world.

Janet Yellen, chair of the Fed, has hinted that US interest rates could rise next month, although this isn’t likely to happen until March next year now following the setbacks on stock markets.

Even so, volatility is likely to continue. So how should investors respond?

Whenever the prospect of a sell-off seems to be particularly severe, there is a temptation to reduce exposure to the market. Once the threat has diminished, we can buy back in, hopefully at lower valuations.

However, it is almost impossible to distinguish between a genuine, imminent crisis and a mere market wobble over an event that proves far less serious than anticipated. As a result, investors who spend too much time waiting for the right moment to invest may miss out on many of the gains.

For example, over the last five years, some investors have kept part or all of their cash on the sidelines. In waiting for the global economy to become a safer place, they have missed out on very significant gains in most asset classes.

The implication is that unless markets are clearly extremely overvalued, your best approach may be to stay invested and try to manage the psychological effects of high volatility. That’s assuming, of course, you are investing for the long term.

If your goal is to retire comfortably in several decades then you have more time in which to regain any losses resulting from short-term volatility. But if you need to access your money sooner, you may wish to rebalance your portfolio. For example, you could move towards asset classes that have historically been less volatile or move into cash.

Focusing on the long term is more easily said than done, but adopting a sensible strategy of diversification should temper the volatility of your portfolio. This means both diversifying within asset classes and among asset classes.

For example, a fully diversified portfolio of stocks will be less volatile than holding just a handful of stocks. No matter how effectively you diversify though, your investments can still fall in value so you may get back less than you invest.

Investors should also consider whether they want to diversify their stock holdings globally, rather than confining themselves to the UK market. In doing so they could benefit from the different performance of international markets.

Note, however, that international diversification can expose investors to another form of volatility: foreign currency risk. This is where the value of investments can fall owing to a decline in the sterling value of foreign currencies.

Investing in main market stocks

The main market on the London Stock Exchange is home to some of the world’s biggest companies, but it also imposes strict listing rules to protect investors.

Investing in equities is very risky: the price of shares in a company can slump dramatically in a matter of hours and the business can even go bust, wiping out your investment altogether. But some types of equity investments are generally considered riskier than others.

Most UK investors buy shares in companies listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) for a series of reasons. Many companies listed on the LSE are British businesses that investors know well. These shares are also priced in pounds, so you don’t need to worry about the prospect of currency movements directly affecting the value of your holding. Still, bear in mind that if a firm makes some sales abroad, changes in foreign exchange rates can still affect profit levels and hence share prices.

However, there is an important distinction to be made between companies listed on the LSE’s main market and its junior exchange, the Alternative Investment Market (AIM).

The main market of the London Stock Exchange, established in 1698, currently includes more than 1,000 firms, from corporate giants such as Vodafone and BP to smaller companies like Topps Tiles and Punch Taverns. The 100 largest companies in the main market make up the blue chip FTSE 100 Index, while the FTSE 250 Index is comprised of mid-sized firms.

Companies on the main market are required to meet strict listing rules tougher than those applied to companies listing on AIM, giving investors more confidence and greater protection.


Generally speaking, companies on the main market tend to be larger, more mature businesses, but the LSE still imposes strict regulations on the companies listed.

To qualify for a premium listing, which includes access to the FTSE indices, companies must meet basic qualifying criteria. The company has to be worth at least £700,000, for example, and it must make at least 25% of its shares available to the public. It must have three years of independently-audited accounts and it must have had control over the majority of its assets for at least three years.

These are important safeguards that mean investors in the business can be confident it is an established company that hasn’t just appeared out of nowhere. Moreover, additional rules ensure that investors are able to keep a close eye on the businesses they have backed (or are considering for investment).

Main market-listed companies must publish an audited annual report within four months of the end of their financial year, as well as more basic half-year reports within two months of the end of this period. The London Stock Exchange also requires firms to publish an interim management statement twice a year, between the annual and semi-annual reports, to update investors on the business.

Companies are also bound by the UK Corporate Governance Code, which sets standards for how companies are run and their relationship with shareholders – those businesses that don’t meet any of the standards must say so and explain why they have chosen not to comply.


Another advantage of the LSE’s main market is that it operates with an electronic order book. This means every investor buying and selling shares in a particular company places their order through the Stock Exchange Electronic Trading Service (SETS) – in practice, your stockbroker or online trading platform may do this on your behalf – detailing what price they are prepared to buy or sell at, and how many shares they want to buy or sell.

Everyone else considering investing in the same company can look at all the orders placed at a given time. This means the system is both transparent – you can see what prices people are willing to trade at – and liquid, in that investors always have access to the maximum possible amount of demand and supply.

By contrast, other markets operate using a quote-driven book (as did the London Stock Exchange until the 1990s). This relies on dealers, or market makers, who post the prices they are prepared to accept for sales and purchases of shares in a particular company at any one time. This is a much less transparent system, since there is no way of knowing what trades other investors dealing with the market maker are hoping to make.

Also, liquidity depends on the market makers – if only one or two dealers choose to trade a particular stock, sale volumes may be quite low. Lower liquidity means there is less likelihood of investors being able to buy or sell at the price they choose.

Investing on the main market, in other words, gives investors access to larger, more closely regulated companies, via a dealing system that produces greater transparency and liquidity.

Remember that all investments can fall as well as rise in value and you may get back less than you invested. Investing in individual shares is not suitable for everyone, and they should usually only be held as part of a diversified portfolio. If you’re unsure, seek independent advice.

The Brazilian real is sliding down a painfully familiar path

Brazil’s real hit its lowest level since it was introduced in 1994 to rescue the country from economic doom.

The currency closed at a historic low of 4.18 real to the US dollar yesterday (Sept. 23) as Brazil struggles with some of the same problems of the early 1990s era: high inflation, budget deficits and a faltering economy.

It may be little consolation to Brazilians, but the economic ills back then were much, much worse. In some years, inflation exceeded 2000%.The exchange rate for the real’s predecessor, the cruzeiro real, was nearly 1,800 per US dollar in 1994.

To restore Brazilians’ faith in their currency, a group of economists established a make-believe currency that was linked to the dollar and remained stable in spite of the jittery cruzeiro.

It worked. The fake currency was later replaced with the real, which started its life at near parity with the dollar.

Given Brazil’s ongoing currency woes, it might be time for another confidence booster.

A Hungarian mayor sends a threatening message to refugees with this weird homemade action video

Hungary has erected a razor-wire fence along its border with Serbia,detained over a hundred refugees, and even fired water cannons and used pepper spray on young children. Just in case refugees didn’t get the message, a far-right Hungarian mayor has released a dramatic homemade video warning them against coming to Hungary.

Laszlo Toroczkai is the mayor of Asotthalom, a village near the border with Serbia, which is at the heart of an ongoing humanitarian crisis. While Hungary’s treatment of refugees has been widely condemned, Toroczkai boasts about the number of policemen and soldiers manning the borders. The video shows the guards on motorbikes, in helicopters, and on horseback. These action shots are underscored by a soundtrack that you’d expect to find in a James Bond film.

The video uses drone footage to highlight the length of the border fenceHungarian authorities have built with Serbia—now extended to Croatia—and explains the potential consequences for illegal trespassers. Refugees who are caught damaging the fence or entering Hungary could be prosecuted and face jail time.

“If you are an illegal immigrant and you want to get to Germany, then the shortest journey from Serbia is through Croatia and Slovenia,” Toroczkai says, while showing alternative routes on Google Maps. “Do not trust lying human traffickers.”

At the end of the video, he emphasizes his point to make sure its sunk in: “Hungary is a bad choice. Asotthalom is the worst.”
