Issuing a Bank Guarantee.
A bank will look for 100% security before issuing a Guarantee and this can take the form of cash or assets.
Any company can apply to their bank to issue a Bank Guarantee on their behalf. The bank will look for 100% security before issuing a Guarantee and this can take the form of cash or assets. If the client is credit worthy the guarantee can be issued on margin.

If the Issuing Bank agrees to issue a Bank Guarantee the mechanics of transferring the Guarantee to the Beneficiaries account is straightforward.
Utilising the Swift system, (“Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications”), the bank will transfer the guarantee to the beneficiary’s bank, using the dedicated message code for transferring Bank Guarantees, Swift MT 760.
In some instances, The Issuing Bank will send a pre advice to the Receiving Bank, using the Swift Message Code MT 799 informing them to expect a Bank Guarantee in favour of their client.
