The main debt products are

  • bonds (long-term market products);
  • commercial paper (short-term market products);
  • short-, medium- or long-term borrowings including RCFs and term loans.

There are also other methods of financing based on assets of the firm:

  • discounting and factoring;
  • securitisation;
  • leasing and sale and lease back;
  • project finance.

Export credit is not per se a debt product as it will not generate a cash-in for the firm but is a way of securing commercial relationships.
