Alternate financing options – ECB and Trade Credits

Dear Member,

When conventional credit markets get tight businesses are pushed to seek alternative lending options. Some of these alternative financing options have been around for a long time, but post 2008 credit crunch spawned some cautious liberalization and also some new potential financing sources for corporates with new ways to access them. Low / sub zero interest rates, minimal yields on government bonds & quantitative easing programs have combined to reopen global debt markets with an enhanced & dynamic perspective over the last few years.

With liquidity surplus in overseas market, covenant lite structures are reappearing & new lenders are moving into the market to provide borrowers with a range of options including banks. With India expected to grow at CAGR of 7.5% to 8.00% in the coming years investors across the globe are expressing interest in this market. In India commercial banks have also geared up to offer unconventional forms of lending to be in line with the market. RBI has cautiously and gradually liberalized this avenue with lot of responsibility on the banks as ‘Authorized Dealers’ (AD). Given the dynamic environment & lucrative options available corporates/entities may certainly want to revisit their debt pattern.

This program organized by Basavanagudi CPE Study Circle aims to provide a bankers perspective on few of the funding options available to corporates and other entities. Eminent team from BancaSense will enhance the participants understanding on the nuances of these funding options from an ADs lens. Details of program is as below:
