What is Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) Monetization?

Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) Monetization is the process of converting a standby letter of credit (sblc) into money or legal tender. But the Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) has to be cut or issued by a prime bank, this is very important because Standby Letters of Credit from unrated banks carry little or no value at all, so monetizing them is difficult.

How do you Monetize a Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) or Bank Guarantee (BG)?

What is a Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC)?

A Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) is a guarantee that is made by a bank on behalf of their client, which ensures payment will be made even if their client cannot fulfill the agreement. It is a payment of last resort from the bank, and ideally, is never meant to be used. A standby letter of credit can be abbreviated either as SLOC or SBLC.

How do SBLCs work in Cross-Border trade? 

Where goods are sold to a counter-party in another country, they may have used an SBLC to ensure their seller will be paid. In the event that there is non-payment, the seller will present the SBLC to the buyer’s bank so that payment is received. A performance SBLC makes sure that the criteria surrounding the trade such as suitability and quality of goods are met. We sometimes see SBLCs in construction contracts as the build must fulfill many quality and time specifications. In the event that the contractor does not fulfill these specifications then there is no need to prove loss or have long protracted negotiations; the SBLC is provided to the bank and payment is then received.
