Magnate Bank guarantees

A Bank guarantee is an irrevocable written commitment of the bank to pay a certain amount in favor of the person to whom a guarantee is issued in case of breach of a contract by a third party. The bank guarantee is a separate obligation independent of the underlying contractual relationship. The issuing bank must pay if all guarantee terms are strictly fulfilled.
