We also raise bilateral credit facilities as well as syndicated credit facilities and private placements for larger commodity players in various forms :

Transactional

Based on collateral of the goods, we can finance imports and exports of commodities for companies based in Switzerland, Europe, Asia or North America. Commodities we finance are exclusively natural resources (such as oil derivatives, softs commodities or base metals).

Pre-Export Financing (PXF)

Pre-export finance (PXF) is an established structure used to provide funding to commodity producers & exporters which have a demonstrated capacity to produce & export commodities.
PXFs can be used to fund either capital investment needs (capital expenditures, acquisitions) or working capital needs of commodity producers & exporters.

Infrastructure and Asset Financing

SCCF can provide tailor-made solutions to finance your organic growth (capital expenditure) or external growth (acquisitions) based on the value of your assets as well as on the level of your current and future cashflows.

Borrowing Base Financing

Borrowing Base is a type of credit facility made available to commodity traders, distributors, refiners and bunkerers to finance their working capital needs, based on a portfolio of current assets pledged in favour of the lenders.

Reserve-Based Lending

Reserve based lending (RBL) is a type of credit facility sized on the basis of the net present value of projected cash flows generated by underlying oil & gas assets. The proceeds from the sale of oil & gas produced by these assets are used to collateralize and repay the credit facility.
RBLs allow oil & gas producers to monetize the future cash flows of their assets to fund organic or external growth.
