Bond Guarantee

CGIF’s bond guarantee operation is aimed at supporting ASEAN+3 companies access the Region’s bond markets to achieve the following benefits:

  • expand and diversify their sources of debt capital
  • raise funds in matching currencies and tenors
  • transcend country sovereign ceilings for cross-border transactions
  • gain familiarity in new bond markets

The guarantees issued by CGIF are irrevocable and unconditional commitments to pay bondholders upon non-payment by the issuers throughout the tenor of the bonds. This commitment is backed by CGIF’s equity capital which has been fully paid-in by all of its contributors. CGIF’s general bond guarantee structure is illustrated here.
