Assignment of proceeds
Special aspects

The beneficiary of the guarantee can normally assign his or her conditional claim for payment to a third party, or assignee (assignment of the proceeds but not the drawing right).
Things to note:

  • The assignee does not automatically receive the right to invoke the guarantee. Only the beneficiary specified by name in the guarantee document can claim under the guarantee.

  • Any change in the beneficiary of the guarantee requires the agreement of all parties involved, i.e. the existing beneficiary, the UBS client and the guaranteeing bank.

  • In contrast to the law concerning sureties, the assignment of the guaranteed claim arising from the underlying transaction does not result in the simultaneous transfer of the conditional guarantee claim.
