Our Collateral Management Services involve receiving physical commodities into storage and retaining control over them until we are instructed to release them in accordance with predetermined terms of agreement.
We achieve physical control by obtaining/regulating technical and security aspects of the storage facilities in accordance with our internal warehousing standards. We also secure legal control of the storage facilities by executing a lease and/or storage agreement with the owners of the facilities.
Additional services such as sampling, distribution and insurance of goods in storage are available upon request. Unless local legislation or the agreement requires that documents of title be issued, receipt of the physical commodities into storage by us is evidenced by the issuance of non-negotiable warehouse receipts.
The advantages of using our Collateral Management Services include:
✓Access to structured trade finance
Increases flexibility and opens option in trade finance transactions
Transfer of storage and other associated risks to the collateral manager
Physical and documentary control of the pledged goods
