Accepted Bills-i (AB-i)

AB-i is a money market priced driven instrument which can be drawn to finance domestic purchases or imports and domestic sales or exports. The AB-i may be sold in the secondary market, thus enabling the Bank to provide attractive financing rate.


AB-i (Purchase)

It is a financing facility granted to you to finance your purchase of tradable goods that include raw material, semi-finished and finished goods. Payment to suppliers will be made immediately by the Bank. It is created for both sight and usance bills. In the latter instance, AB-i financing enables extension of credit to you.


AB-i (Sales)

It is a financing facility granted to finance your sales or export of goods on credit terms that include raw materials, semi-finished and finished goods. It is a short term financing facility whereby the Bank purchases the debt which is securitised in the form of Accepted Bills.
