The initial agreement on participation in the BAFT master`s degree was launched in 2008. It is based on English law and should be the industry`s standard document for transactions to facilitate the purchase and sale of commercial financing assets worldwide. The Bankers` Association for Finance and Trade (BAFT) was founded in 1921 and is an international financial trade association that is held around the global financial community. Its membership consists of international financial institutions and companies that are actively involved in global and commercial financing. In this agreement, ”deployment” is considered an ”introduction” after providing a potential customer`s contact information to the supplier. No commission or commission is due to the importer at the time of introduction, but can be paid when payments are received from time to time (within an agreed time frame) by the supplier by the customer. There are several versions of a master participation contract. The most widely used versions are the BAFT Master Participation Agreement, based on English law, and the International Trade and Forfaiting Association (ITFA) Master Participation Agreement, based on New York law. With respect to capitalization risk participation, it was agreed that the participant will finance the original lender to enable the lender to meet its obligations under a request for intervention under the credit contract between the borrower and the original lender. The initial lender then sells its shares in the loan to the participant.
The agreement also contains anti-corruption provisions – which are designed to be ”SME-friendly” with a relatively simple scope and language. A letter of credit is a credit instrument that, on behalf of an importer, serves as a commitment on the part of a bank, namely that payment to the exporter is made as soon as the terms set out in the accreditor are met. A lender is established in the name of an importer for the benefit of an exporter, which allows the exporter to obtain a certain amount of money as payment for the exported goods. Letters of credit are a classic form of commercial financing and are usually issued by the bank to guarantee payment. A bond portfolio replaces the risk of the buyer with that of the issuing bank. The bank or lender may sell its shares in the credit facility issued under the letter of credit through a master ownership agreement to a participant.
