Debt Primary Markets and Securitization

Debt Primary Markets

With the implementation of Basel III, the ability of banks to provide balance sheet funding is being reduced and becoming more expensive. As a result, capital-light products in areas like debt capital markets and securitisation are becoming increasingly important.?Infrastructure development and improvement projects are a priority across the continent. With infrastructure project finance, after initial bridge financing or retained cash flow, long-term funding solutions need to be in place. Capital markets are expected to drive most of those projects, with debt capital market or securitisation funding generally best placed to serve this need.?With an extensive presence in the East Africa region and experience in the sectors most relevant to its growth and development, Stanbic Bank provides versatile solutions to our clients.

LIQUIDITY

COLLECTIONS

PAYMENTS 

ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT

Liquidity management is a set of techniques and strategic policies that enables companies to achieve optimal profitability from under-utilised cash and increase control over cash flows. It is the management of the cash balances and short-term investment strategies. The efficient management of cash improves profitability, reduces risk exposure and thereby prevents bankruptcy.  

 

Services offered by our liquidity management team include: 

 

Pooling  

 

Pooling (also referred to as notional pooling) allows the bank to pool cash in your liquidity management structure. You will accrue or be charged interest, depending on the net balance of the pooled cash. This varies depending on whether you have a negative balance or a positive balance. The primary purpose of a notional pool is to reduce the overdraft interest when you have a negative balance or to maximise interest on your cash when you have a positive balance.  There is no movement of your cash from your account and there is no co-mingling of balances, we simply get a snapshot of your cash position. Notional pooling, where allowed, is normally part of a product set offered to customers. 

Sweeping  

 

Here, balances (both debit and credit) in participating accounts are physically transferred into a concentration, master or nominated account for management by group treasury. Sweeping can be done on a zero-balance basis, where the balances in the accounts are brought to zero or where accounts are left at a target level. Sweeping between legal entities creates intercompany loans, on which interest must be paid or received. This is very beneficial when you have independent companies within a group structure, or independent cash generating departments within a single company.    

You also get to enjoy an exchange control advisory service which assists with advice on cross-border liquidity management services 

 

Stanbic Bank’s collection solutions ensure value is passed to your accounts as quickly and securely as possible, and that enough information is provided for you to identify the source of any funds entering your accounts. 

 

Our range of collection solutions include: 

 

Direct debit: Funds are pulled electronically from your debtor’s account for credit to your bank account. 

Cash collection via numerous channels, including Auto Safe (a secure cash accepting terminal that counts, verifies, validates and secures bank notes in a tamper-proof container on your premises), branches and cash centres.  

Teller on site: A team of bank tellers handle receipting and counting of cash on your premises. 

Cheque collection. 

Foreign currency receipts. 

Merchant acquiring service: A facility that allows your customers to pay by credit or debit card. 

 

Stanbic Bank’s payment solutions ensure that your payments are implemented accurately and on time. Payments can be made electronically via a range of secure data transfer channels, or physically by means of cash, cheque or card. 

Our electronic payment solutions enable our clients to:

POWER AND INFRASTRUCTURE

Power is the single biggest driver of economic growth and competition in emerging markets. As these economies grow, so too does their need for infrastructure such as ports, railways, roads, airports, hospitals and schools. Addressing these needs can present a number of challenges, including volatile fuel prices and exchange rates, rising construction costs, along with social and environmental concerns.  

 

Our specialist teams in Uganda, Johannesburg, London and Beijing are experienced in securing finance or refinancing any power and infrastructure transaction, and to structure solutions that will ensure minimal risk and volatility.  

 

As a leading bank in Africa, Stanbic Bank can advise all our clients on transactions, whether from the perspective of an investor, contractor or equipment supplier.

 Debt Primary Markets and Securitization

Debt Primary Markets

With the implementation of Basel III, the ability of banks to provide balance sheet funding is being reduced and becoming more expensive. As a result, capital-light products in areas like debt capital markets and securitisation are becoming increasingly important.?Infrastructure development and improvement projects are a priority across the continent. With infrastructure project finance, after initial bridge financing or retained cash flow, long-term funding solutions need to be in place. Capital markets are expected to drive most of those projects, with debt capital market or securitisation funding generally best placed to serve this need.?With an extensive presence in the East Africa region and experience in the sectors most relevant to its growth and development, Stanbic Bank provides versatile solutions to our clients.

DEBT CAPITAL MARKETS?

 

Through issuing bonds or derivatives, investments in the bond market tend to diversify risk and enhance fixed income returns. Debt markets provide more direct access to capital with better long-term efficiency.

 

SECURITISATION?

By converting liquid assets with predictable cash flows into tradable securities, securitisation offers an attractive option for investors seeking diversification and securities with a high credit quality. For clients needing to optimise their funding and/or capital structures, it is an alternative source of finance at a lower rate than traditional term funding.
