Frequently asked questions
Bondaval is a fintech providing a better way to secure credit risk. Partnering with ‘A-rated’ insurers, Bondaval offers a more secure, capital-efficient and cost-effective form of secured credit that can be issued, amended, renewed and claimed-on in real-time.
Existing instruments can take months to secure and hold significant downsides. Examples include:
Trade Credit Insurance. Policies typically require risk sharing in the form of a deductible and/or co-insurance. They tend to include past due notifications, cease shipment clauses, application of funds language, collection fees for protracted default recoveries, as well as claim filing waiting periods and deadlines. The task of completing due diligence on the credit worthiness of receivables tends to fall to the Supplier's credit and collection team to confirm the receivables can be considered insured risk.
Letters of credit and other bank-issued guarantees. Priced and collateralized as if banks were lending the buyer money, creating a needless capital squeeze on the buyer.
Personal guarantees and collateral requirements. Put strain on the supplier-buyer relationship and lead to a needless capital squeeze on the buyer
Bondaval provides a security instrument backed by its insurer partners’ balance sheets, administered via its own digital platform (or the ERP of its customers via API).
This provides a more secure, capital efficient, and convenient solution.
MicroBonds are irrevocable instruments. Their terms are binding and provide for quick payouts (typically within 48-hours), with no past due reporting necessary. Waiting periods and claim filing windows are not required. Cover is non-cancellable and up to 100% of the required limit.
Buyers cannot approach insurers for credit insurance: It must be put in place by suppliers. This is most commonly in the form of whole turnover trade credit insurance – an expensive and inflexible instrument.
Like letters of credit, MicroBonds secure buyer’s payment obligations per a supply contract.
Unlike letters of credit, MicroBonds require no collateral with issuance, renewal, and adjustment taking minutes, not months.
MicroBonds are competitively priced versus alternatives. Suppliers can choose to pass along the cost to their buyers with the click of a button, or choose to pay for some, or all, of the cost of the security.
The cost of each MicroBond can be tailored to each buyer's risk profile and required credit limit, or priced at a flat premium rate across a portfolio.
