Inventory Finance - A revolving credit line for the procurement of raw material. It helps cover the time it takes from buying raw material to receiving funds for finished goods sold.

Invoice Finance - Offering businesses the ability to unlock value tied up in unpaid invoices, providing precious cash flow that can be used to support additional sales. Upon billing a client for goods or services, funds can immediately be raised up to a pre-agreed percentage of the invoice amount. Cheque Discounting - Operating in a similar manner to Invoice Finance and is ideal for raising funds against goods or services that have been sold to clients who are paying by post-dated cheque. Cheques presented for discounting are funded up to a pre-agreed percentage, and upon the cheque clearing the excess amount over the funding drawn is remitted back to you.

The Standard Fixed Deposit pays a high rate of interest, though early withdrawals are not permitted.

Corporate deposits can vary from a minimum of AED 1M up to a maximum of AED 100M, with tenors available from 6 months to 24 months. Interest rates are offered on the basis of the size of the deposit and the tenor, with larger deposits over longer tenors attracting the most generous rates.

4 PROJECTS WE HAVE PROUDLY FINANCED A Water Bottling Factory Gulf Finance provided a UAE-based water bottling company with finance for new equipment with an Asset Finance term loan used to increase their production capacity. This funding helped this small business to rapidly increase their production capacity from a limited 3 bottle size offerings to 6 different sizes that better met their customer preferences. This funding was made possible within a week of their application. They are currently making monthly repayments without putting pressure on their daily cash flows. A Printing Press Providing a combination of Asset Finance and Invoice Discounting facilities helped a printing press increase operational efficiency with the purchase of an 8 colour Heidelberg printer. The 90 day invoice discounting line reduced the operating cycle creating immediate access to funds, which were then channeled to purchase raw materials. A Supply Chain and Logistics provider Gulf Finance s Asset Finance term loan was used by a supply chain and logistics free-zone company for capital investment to purchase a warehouse. The company was able to consolidate 4 different rented warehouse locations into one, reducing the annual rent cost while providing their customers with a centralised, multi-product storage facility service.
