  • These are the advantages of a bank guarantee/SBLC with EJ Finance?

    1. Reduced financial risks
    2. Guarantee of performance of terms & conditions of the contract
    3. Better expansion opportunities for overseas businesses.
    4.No advance payments
    5.Proof of borrower’s credibility
    6.Less documentation work
    7.Legally backed-up by a recognized institution.

    What is the difference between SBLC and bank guarantee?
    Bank guarantee helps importers and exporters avoid the risk of non-payment and non-performance where standby letter of credit(SBLC) protects only beneficiaries. There is only a single bank in bank guarantee whereas SBLC involves a third-party bank (generally a foreign bank) also to cover both financial and non-financial risks of the guarantee.
