UBS rollover credit
The alternative for capital spending
The UBS rollover credit can be used to finance capital spending (not working capital) over the medium to long term. The principal, any repayments and the term are fixed contractually in advance for the entire duration of the facility. However, during its term the UBS rollover credit is used in the form of a series of short-term fixed advances. It is also possible to hedge against interest risk.
The key advantages:
Medium to long-term credit facility but with a short interest-rate commitment - advantageous if interest rates are falling.
The option to hedge against rising interest rates.
Interest is charged net, i.e. without credit commission.
Terms & conditions at a glance:
The rate of interest is based on money market rates in London (LIBOR) plus a margin.
The margin is set individually and depends on the client's creditworthiness.
Reduced interest is charged if the client provides readily realizable collateral, for example in the form of securities.
The risk of rising interest rates can be hedged using various hedging products (derivatives), which can be tailored to the client's risk tolerance. The hedging costs are either paid in advance as a one-off premium or paid off in the form of an additional margin supplement over the term of the UBS rollover credit.
Usable currencies: Swiss francs and all common foreign currencies.
