Bank guarantees



Bank guarantees play an increasing role in local and international trade. Under a bank guarantee the bank acts as a guarantor of a claim or obligation, which makes you a reliable and trustworthy partner.








What is a bank guarantee?

A bank guarantee serves as a guarantee for the beneficiary that the partner to a contract (applicant) shall fulfil the assumed financial obligations. 


What are the benefits of using bank guarantees?

  • They allow you to negotiate better contractual conditions
  • They make it easier to obtain advance payment for the delivery of goods
  • They serve as an affirmation of a bank’s trust in its client’s business and as an indirect demonstration of business soundness
  • They protect beneficiaries against commercial risks of non-compliance or limited compliance with the contract by the partner
  • They mitigate the risk associated with non-payment for exported goods
  • They ensure protection against the risk of advance payment loss
  • They give users the option to make no advance payments
