A Bank Guarantee is a written instrument issued by a bank to a party (beneficiary) on behalf of the customer (principal), stipulating payment by the bank to the beneficiary in case of default, against the submission of a written demand and/or other documents specified in the guarantee text. Bank Guarantees are widely used all over the world for the reliable protection of the other party from counterparty default risk.
