Project Data Sheet (PDS): Overview


The proposed transaction is a credit guarantee on Alliance Bank's first deferred payment rights (DPR) securitization of up to USD100 million. DPRs are SWIFT MT 100 category series payment order messages. These payment orders are a product of the international financial operations of ALB. Payment orders are created as a result of ALB's role as a financial intermediary between foreign payors wishing to send funds to Kazakhstan and residents of Kazakhstan that are recipients of these funds. ALB will sell the future expected flows of such payment orders. ADB will take the role of a traditional mono-line insurer and provide credit enhancement to the issued notes. ADB's scope of guarantee will cover payment of principal and interest of the guaranteed notes. Read More
