  • The Professional Guarantee Law introduced a new type of flexible guarantee of payment (the “Professional Guarantee”).
  • The new regime has two key principles: (i) contractual freedom and (ii) legal certainty.
  • Parties may freely negotiate the terms of the Professional Guarantee.
  • Parties have to expressly opt for the new regime.
  • The Professional Guarantee is particularly useful for syndicated loans, synthetic securitisations, international capital markets transactions and credit enhancement schemes.
