Italian term or phrase: avallo
"...la società potrà concedere fidejussioni, AVALLI, cauzioni, garanzie anche a favore di terzi..." (Obviously in this context I cannot translate avallo as 'garantee', 'surety', or 'security' since these are already used in the sentence. Is 'aval' a valid word in English?)
