A financing contract product requires a lump sum investment paid to the seller, which then offers the buyer a fixed rate of return over a period of time, often with the LIBOR-based return, which has become the world`s most popular benchmark for short-term interest rates. Here`s an example that talks very briefly about how pre-financing money works: www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NiW5… A financing agreement is a type of investment that some institutional investors use because of the instrument`s low-risk and fixed-rate characteristics. The term generally refers to an agreement between two parties, with the issuer offering the investor a return on a lump sum investment. Generally speaking, two parties can enter into a legally binding financing agreement and the terms will generally determine the expected use of the capital and the expected return to the investor over time. Financing agreements and other similar types of investments often have liquidity constraints and require prior notification – either by the investor or by issuing – for early withdrawal or termination of the contract. This is why agreements are often aimed at wealthy and institutional investors with substantial capitals for long-term investments. Mutual funds and pension plans often purchase financing agreements because of the security and predictability they offer. The proceeds of financing contracts are similar to capital guarantee funds or guaranteed investment contracts, both instruments also promising a fixed rate of return at low or no risk for the investor.
In other words, guarantee funds can generally be invested without risk of loss and are generally considered risk-free. However, like certificates of deposit or pension certificates, financing agreements generally offer only modest returns. In some cases (too many), the lessor has none of these protection measures and simply sends a cheque to the seller without the tenant letting the rental period begin by executing the certificate of acceptance. The best practice in this unattractive scenario is for the tenant to sign an agreement recognizing that the tenant pays the landlord the total amount of the landlord`s advance to the seller with interest, if the equipment is not accepted by the taker at a later date. In other words, if the tenant refuses to accept the equipment for any reason (good or bad), the tenant takes the risk of pre-financing and pays the lessor all his lost funds. One way to structure such an agreement would be to require the tenant to purchase the equipment from the landlord if he or she does not execute the certificate of acceptance. Thus, the tenant is able to return to the seller for breach of guarantees or other claims, which is exactly the legal situation in which the tenant should be, but for the obligation of pre-financing of the lessor.
