- Financial Lease
This is a credit facility where ALGO grants the use of an asset (collateral) to clients for a fee (rental), for a specific period of time. This can be availed of either through Direct Lease, should clients require asset acquisition, or through Sale and Lease Back, if the purpose is for working capital. Ownership of the asset, however, remains under ALGO during the term.
Equipment used in communication, construction, information technology, logistics, manufacturing, and medical services, (commercial, industrial, and residential) are eligible for lease.
- Secured Commercial Loan
This credit facility pertains to the traditional way of financing an asset or raising working capital through mortgage. Clients retain ownership over the asset during the loan term while taking advantage of best asset valuation, convenience, and flexibility of payment.
