Key features

Amounts from £10m

Initial loan amounts range from £10m to £50m or more. The loan can be further extended by up to 90% of the initial amount through the sale of retained bonds.

5-25 year funding

For terms up to 10 years bonds can be offered publicly and widely distributed. For terms up to 25 years bonds will be placed with one or more institutional investors.

Secured or unsecured

No security is required for public offers of up to 10 years, though borrowers are generally required to maintain enough unsecured assets to cover the loan. RCB can also provide secured longer-dated loans.

Unrestricted

No restrictions on how the borrower uses the funding. Investors will invest based on the credit strength of the borrower and not on the basis of any future business plans.

Light covenants

Unsecured issues typically have light covenants, tailored to each borrower. All borrowers are required to provide six-monthly trading updates and an annual statement of social impact.

Access to a wide range of investors

A listed RCB issue provides access to both institutional investment funds and to individual investors, who can invest from £500 through their broker.

Sustainability bond framework

RCB can issue social, green and sustainable bonds under a framework accredited by S&P Global. This alignment with the ICMA principles creates a strong appeal for ethically-focused investors.

Restructuring of existing loans

RCB provides the ability to purchase, restructure and refinance existing loans, enabling borrowers to address high costs and onerous covenants in their current debt portfolio.
