Mumbai: Private sector lender ICICI Bank on Monday announced the launch of two new products, Loan Against Deposits (LAD) and Dollar Bonds, for NRI customers at its branch in GIFT City, the Gujarat-based emerging global financial and IT services hub.

ICICI Bank is the first bank to offer these products in GIFT City.

Sriram H. Iyer, Head–International Banking Group, ICICI Bank, said: “We, at ICICI Bank, continue to launch solutions to meet customer needs. In line with this philosophy, we are offering Dollar Bonds and Loan against Deposits to our NRI customers through our branch at GIFT City.

“Foreign currency bonds are one of the preferred investment options amongst NRI clients. We want to provide our customers with the ease of banking digitally, driving a seamless journey and a hassle-free experience.

“As we expand our horizons, we are excited to see what lies ahead of us while we continue to create value for our customers across geographies in line with regulatory provisions.”

LAD resembles a loan in foreign currency against a deposit in India (including Rupee NRE FDs). The customers can avail LAD for their short-term cash requirement without having to prematurely close their Term Deposits and thereby avoid paying a penalty for breaking the deposit.

They can avail up to 95 per cent of their deposit value. With a simple documentation process, customers can get flexible tenure with fixed or floating interest rates.

Dollar Bonds is an alternate investment option for NRIs, where they can book dollar bonds through ICICI Bank in GIFT City. The Bank offers a cohort of over 50 marquee issuers/companies for these bonds.
