  • Security and Insurance
    Any property and/or property right not forbidden by the RA and AR Legislations and by the Bank’s crediting policy may be considered as collateral.

    Equipments are seen as collateral if there are documents proving ownership and it is possible to perform identification. In other cases such collaterals are viewed as secondary ones.

    Security with subsequent pledge is allowed, if the primary right for pledge also belongs to the Bank; while Customer’s gross loan obligations/collateral ratio satisfies the limits set forth by the Bank.

    The Bank may demand insurance for any property to be pledged depending on the aim of financing, transaction and description of the property to be pledged.

    While estimating the financing amount/collateral value, the value of pledge is calculated based on the following principle:

    - in case of vehicles, equipments, securities, and high liquid assets – liquidation price,
    - in case of other means – market price.
