Using Intellectual Property as Collateral

Accessing Financing is one of the major challenges faced by many business owners looking to start or expand their operations. In many cases, getting the bank or whichever financial institution to say yes to your request, requires persons to cross a major hurdle, having collateral.

Collateral acts as security for lenders, allowing them to retrieve their money in the event borrowers are unable to repay the loan.

However most borrowers don’t have high value assets to use as collateral, for the kind of loans they need. But there may be a solution.

Discussions are underway to allow businesses to use the value of their intellectual property (IP) such as products, trademarks and other items collateral.

Work of the NCBJ

Have you ever noticed that when you go out to shop you tend to choose certain brands without even thinking? That is due largely to the quality you have come to associate with the product and the company that makes it.

The way the product is packaged, its look, feel, taste and smell – all these elements combine to certify for you that the product is one of consistent quality. And as a result you confidently drop it into your shopping cart or trolley.

But before a product can get on the shelf for us to purchase, there are a series of steps it must first overcome, a process known as certification.

This is where the work of the National Certification Body of Jamaica (NCBJ) comes in.
