French term or phrase: ENCOURS
ENCOURS PORTEURS
cbg
titleholders' outstanding liabilities
Explanation:
encours = outstanding liabilities, debts, monies due

porteurs = not so clear as no context. If "porteurs" is a noun, then is refers to those who hold or are responsible (liable) for the o/s liabilities.

Perhaps "porteurs" is in fact an adjective (?) in which case it is means that the o/s liabilities referred to as goign to bring in some extra money one day, over and above the imeediate value of the liability itself. Sounds far-fetched though. I do really think that the former is more likely!

holders' liabilities (in bills of exchange)


Explanation:
this one comes from grandictionnaire and i think it fits better first because porteurs is translated, second because liabilities corresponds to the original string which is short
hope it helps
