Provider Name CABEI (Central American Bank for Economic Integration)
Product Definition In an A / B Loan, CABEI subscribes a credit agreement and defines the level of participation of other institutions. Under this type of loan structure, CABEI as lender of record, transfers certain rights and obligations under the underlying credit agreement to third parties, including the privileges and immunities of multilateral entity status.

The participating banks, who take shelter under the coverage of CABEI as multilateral bank, are eligible to have a preferred creditor status, obtain an implicit country risk coverage, receive exemption from restrictions on convertibility of currency, exemption from certain debt provisions, and exemption from withholding taxes . These benefits can attract a greater number of investors interested in projects within the region.
