The Guarantee is a written undertaking from a bank that if a customer does not honor an obligation to perform a particular function or service, the bank will pay over a sum of money on behalf of that customer to a named party.

Bank Guarantees or Bonds can be Conditional or Unconditional. When a guarantee is conditional, that any one who wishes to claim under that guarantee must fulfill certain conditions before the guarantor is prepared to pay the appropriate sum to the beneficiary. When a guarantee is a simple demand guarantee, this means that the beneficiary named in the document is able to claim the benefit stated in the guarantee by simple demand.

Letters of Credit

Letters of Credit are as old as banking itself. They are based upon the fact that the creditworthiness of an unknown Buyer is thus replaced by the creditworthiness of a known Bank. AIG Offshore Banking, often has to stand in the shoes of its customers and give some form of undertaking that payment will be made provided certain conditions are complied with. This mechanism is called as Letter of Credit or Documentary Credit. Although there are various types of Letters of Credit, people are most likely to be familiar with the terms Import or Export Letter of Credit. These terms are used when AIG Offshore Banking is acting for an importing or exporting customer.

How does it Work?
When a Buyer applies for an Import Letter of Credit it specifies the Exporter, the amount, the Currency, the maturity date, the nature of goods, as well as any other payment terms. The Exporter in his country is then advised that a Letter of Credit has been opened in his favor, therefore he is the beneficiary of an Export Letter of Credit. Therein, the Exporter ships the goods to the Importer and presents all the required documents to the bank. The bank checks the documents for complying with the Letter of Credit and makes payments to the Exporter. At the end, the bank claims settlement from the Importer.
