This updated publication examines the notable advancements in the legal aspects of pledges, guarantees, and letters of credit since the last edition in August 1998, including the emergence of the principle of unconscionability. It begins by presenting an overview of the current state of the law, followed by a thorough exploration of the guiding principles in this field.

Similar to its predecessor, the author maintains a lucid and precise style in discussing the principles established in relevant cases. Extracts from judgments are provided to enhance comprehension of the legal principles involved. This text serves as a definitive resource for professionals in the banking sector.

Key features include:

- Incorporation of legal developments since the previous edition in August 1998.
- Inclusion of new cases and those previously unaddressed, strengthening the text.
- Examination and analysis of the recently enacted Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act (Cap 53B).
- Discussion of the evolving principle of unconscionability as a basis, alongside fraud, for restraining a beneficiary from invoking payment under a performance bond or guarantee.
- Coverage of new developments in letters of credit, including documents generated by photocopiers and computers, as well as the tort liability of individuals creating documents for presentation under letters of credit.
