Other structured debt instruments are senior debt wherein the borrower gets better rate of interest but the lender would have first charge over the borrower’s project. In mezzanine debt, the lender lays equity claim on borrower’s holdings in the event of default either in terms of time or amount. This helps lender get additional security coverage in a volatile market.

Private Equity participation involves commitment of large funds by a group of investors for a longer time horizon to fund new technologies and projects, to bail out a distressed company or in acquisition of market competitors. These funds can be used in purchasing shares of private companies, or in public companies that eventually become delisted from public stock exchanges under go-private deals. Elysium Capital constantly works on sustaining a pool of such investors both private and institutional and connects them to any such investment opportunity in the market.
Elysium Capital leverages its strong relationship with Financial Institutions in structuring debt for its clients. Debt Syndication comes handy in case of large value debt requirement wherein the risk is divided between various financial institutions. We understand the requirement of the client, conduct internal due diligence, prepare and circulate the Information Memorandum ensuring coordination with all lenders and investors with an objective to achieve consensual terms and conditions.
Fund Based Facilities
- Term loan: Funds required for acquiring fixed assets given as long term loan repaid in installments from the profits of the company.
- Cash Credit: Limits assigned to the SMEs, utilized for working capital requirements of the unit. CC limit against inventory is given to finance pre-sales requirements (holding of raw materials, work in progress and finished goods) and CC against debtors or book debt is to finance post sales requirements.
- Bill Discounting: In this facility, the financial institution buys the commercial bill before it is due and credits the bill amount at a discount to the customer, wherein the discount is the rate of interest charged by the FI. This enables the customer to encash his accounts receivable.
- Lease Rental Discounting (LRD): Term Loan offered against rental receipts from property leased under long term contracts especially to a corporate entity.
Non – Fund Based Facilities
- Letter of Credit: A confirmation from the buyer’s bank guaranteeing the payment against the bill raised by the seller subject to fulfillment of all the conditions in the contract letter. The product is particularly helpful in cases wherein the seller does not have full trust over the buyer.
- Bank Guarantee: This is an instrument in the form of a promise from the lending institution to make good the payment/loss in case of a default by the customer with reference to the terms of the contract.
Home Loans: Elysium Capital has the knowledge and expertise to facilitate its clients with small and large home loans at highly competitive rates. Thriving on its strong relationship with banks and non-banking financial corporations, Elysium Capital processes its clients’ documents at a pace unmatched in the market.
Loan Against Property: Also known as LAP, it is a loan disbursed against the mortgage of a property. The loan is given as a certain percentage of the property's market value, usually around 55 per cent. Loan against property belongs to the secured loan category where the borrower gives a guarantee by using his property as security.

Elysium Smiles has supported 15 families and is targeting 100 families by year 2021.
