Structure and Procedures

  1. JV Agreement & Profit Sharing Agreement between BSG, AWI & Client agreeing to a 30/5/65 split of all returns 30% AWI, 5% BSG & 65% Client. Allowances of 1.5% must be made for secondary brokers

  2. Loan Agreement in place between Client & AWI for accounting purposes and to illustrate that AWI has the money on its balance sheet.

  3. Escrow Agreement - We arrange an escrow with a credible Escrow Agent (i.e bank or law firm) like Bentley Legal (offices in UK & AUS) and transfer approximately €/$15.1m to the escrow agents account for Proof of Funds

  4. AWI will then submit the application with POF to the compliance officer (who deals with both the Issuing House and Trade platform) for approval. If the trader supports the transaction we will commence to purchase the SBLC.

  5. AWI will receive a Trade Agreement from Trading bank which will be made available for BSG & Client at AWI offices to view.

  6. AWI will enter into the trade agreement with the Trader and once this process is completed the Escrow Agent will release the initial $55K to the issuing bank and the Traders bank and the Issuing House bank will start the bank-to-bank process to receive the SLBC.

  7. Once the SBLC is received and verified by the Trader, the escrow agent will release the remaining $15Mn funds to the Issuing House.

  8. AWI will immediately arrange an advance payment from the Trader for min of 1 week’s trade returns equal to 25% of issued SBLC to be paid to the escrow agent. The Escrow Agent will release the advance payment funds as per JV Agreement to beneficiaries (parties to the JV Agreement) and for accounting purposes the loan is then settled.

  9. Trade commences 15 days after the SBLC is received by the trading bank and the advance is given.

  10. First week (after 15 day window) will settle our advance and from the second week our profits start rolling in.

Escrow Agreement

  1. The terms of the escrow will be quite simple: to only release funds to the Issuing House once the SBLC has been received and verified.

  2. If we are using the same escrow agent to receive profits, then the agent will also execute the terms of the PSA.
