A Bank Guarantee or Standby Letter of Credit is a guarantee that is leased to a third party for a specific fee from a prime rated bank.

The issuing bank will send the guarantee to the borrower’s receiving bank, and the issuing bank then becomes a backer for debts incurred by the borrower, up to the guaranteed amount.

The correct technical term is Collateral Transfer, Financial historians suggest that the term “leased” in relation to bank guarantees is derived from commercial leasing contracts that have similarities to a “leased bank guarantee” contract. However, leased, in the context of leased bank guarantee (or leased standby letter of credit), is rooted in todays’ financial jargon and is here to stay.

The two parties enter into a Collateral Transfer Agreement. One party (Provider) and owner of the asset, will transfer the bank guarantee to another party (Beneficiary) for a limited period of time usually one year. The Beneficiary is ordinarily able to extend the Collateral transfer agreement for further time if required.

The ownership of the asset then reverts to the provider on expiry of the bank guarantee. The Beneficiary will pay the Provider a “contract fee” in payment for the use of their asset. On receipt of the bank guarantee, the Beneficiary is free to approach their bank and apply for a line of credit or bank loan, (known as credit guarantee facilities), utilising the bank guarantee as security.

The Beneficiary must ensure all loans and credit lines are repaid before the expiry of the guarantee.

Understanding Leased Bank Guarantee and Standby Letter of Credit:

• A leased bank guarantee (BG) is the cash-backed bank guarantee of a third party for a fee. 

• An issuing bank will lease a Bank Guarantee or Standby Letter of Credit to a customer it has deemed to be creditworthy for a set fee and over a certain period of time.

• The issuer sends the guarantee to the customer’s primary receiving bank, taking the role of backer for any debts the customer accrues, up to the amount that has been guaranteed. 

Bank Guarantee is used to successfully secure financing for personal and commercial projects. These are typically used in global finance, trade finance, credit enhancement, projects finance and much more.

Types of BG Bank Guarantees:

Financial Guarantee is a legally binding promise to pay by the issuing bank should the applicant renege on payment(s) to the beneficiary.

Performance Guarantee is a legally binding promise to pay by the issuing bank to the beneficiary if it is proven the applicant is guilty of non-performance on a contract.

A Standby Letter of Credit, abbreviated as SBLC, refers to a legal document where a bank guarantees the payment of a specific amount of money to a seller if the buyer defaults on the agreement.

An SBLC acts as a safety net for the payment of a shipment of physical goods or completed service to the seller, in the event something unforeseen prevents the buyer from making the scheduled payments to the seller. In such a case, the SBLC ensures the required payments are made to the seller after fulfilment of the required obligations.

In case of an adverse event, the bank promises to make the required payment to the seller as long as they meet the requirements of the SBLC. The bank payment to the seller is a form of credit, and the customer (buyer) is responsible for paying the principal plus interest as agreed with the bank.

Types of SBLC Standby Letter of Credit:

• A Financial SBLC guarantees payment for goods or services as specified by an agreement. An oil refining company, for example, might arrange for such a letter to reassure a seller of crude oil that it can pay for a huge delivery of crude oil.

• The performance SBLC, which is less common, guarantees that the client will complete the project outlined in a contract. The bank agrees to reimburse the third party in the event that its client fails to complete the project.

Both Bank Guarantee and Standby Letter of Credit work to reduce the risk in a business agreement or transactions. When a Bank Guarantee or Standby Letter of Credit is in effect, the parties involved are less liable and are therefore more inclined to consent to the transaction. These contracts are especially significant and helpful in transactions that might otherwise be dangerous, like those contracts pertaining to real estate and International Trade.
