MT760 Explained

In dealing in Bank Guarantees, one may hear the phrase ‘MT760’.

This is the SWIFT Message Type that Bank Guarantees are sent and received by inter-communicating banks. When sending a Bank Guarantee by SWIFT, the SWIFT Operator will enter the details on this Message Type relating to the specifics of the Guarantee.

It is only Bank Guarantees that are sent with this Message Type 760.

It is important not to get caught up in inter-bank jargon and would advise that this phrase is not used when discussing Bank Guarantees as it neither concerns the client nor the recipient. Its meaning is strictly inter-bank communication and nothing else.
