A Banker’s Guarantee (BG) is a definite undertaking by the bank (guarantor) to pay the beneficiary a certain sum of money within a specified period if the applicant (principal) fails to fulfill his contractual or other obligations of an underlying transaction. It is normally used to secure either a financial or performance obligation of the principal.

BG is normally used to secure either a financial or performance obligation of the principal and provides the beneficiary with a payment undertaking from UOB (guarantor) by issuing them a BG. UOB will pay your beneficiary upon receipt of a demand under the BG.
