Escrow account
When financing the developer housing projects, mBank Hipoteczny requires that an escrow account be set up for the purpose of depositing funds owned by the developer, including payments made by individual clients. It is used to control all cash flows associated with the project’s financing, thus representing a guarantee of the project’s financial transparency and mitigating the risk involved. Funds deposited in the escrow account bear interest in accordance with the terms and conditions agreed upon with the Bank on a case‑by-case basis.

 

Project finance

n order to mitigate the risk involved in financing a developer’s project, the Bank prefers the establishment of a special purpose vehicle the business operations of which should be strictly limited to activities linked with the management of the investment project.

The "project finance" formula mitigates both the Bank’s risk and that of the borrower, its main advantages include:

  • separating the cash flows associated with a given project from other cash flows
  • off-balance-sheet nature of the special purpose vehicle’s debt from the perspective of its shareholders
  • higher financial leverage in the project’s financing
  • the fact that in the event of the project’s failure the special purpose vehicle’s bankruptcy does not mean the bankruptcy of its shareholders
  • flexible conditions of use of external financial means
