Loan Insurance Scheme

The Loan Insurance Scheme (LIS) is a government-assisted scheme jointly administered by IE Singapore and SPRING Singapore.

The scheme seeks to help Singapore-based companies obtain trade financing facilities from participating financial institutions, with insurance against insolvency risks. The government subsidises up to 50% of the insurance premium.

The types of trade facilities supported by the scheme are:

  • Inventory or stock financing
  • Structured pre-delivery working capital
  • Receivables services
  • Banker's guarantee for contractual fulfilment

Standard Chartered Bank (Singapore) Limited is an active Participating Financial Institution (PFI) of this scheme.
