Surety Bonds / Financial Services Surety

The financial services sector has unique surety bond needs. Competition and additional capacity have created a commercial surety marketplace that is hungry for strong, stable accounts such as those provided by banks & depositories, broker dealers, finance companies, and investment firms. Significant savings can be found by replacing letters of credit and/or testing the marketplace on existing programs.

Surety for Excess FDIC Deposit Protection

Depositories are often required to provide collateral as security for deposits. The amount of collateral is determined by the entity’s deposit level and the policy or legally required collateral margin. The types of collateral vary by state and can include low-yield government-issued bonds and notes, fully-secured FHLB letters of credit, and surety bonds.

  • Public Educational Institutions
  • Government Entities
  • Bankruptcy Trustees

Depository bonds can also be an effective sales tool to attract high-value clients. Some organizations are required to act as fiduciaries and exercise “prudent fiscal management” in maintaining the integrity of the reserve account. A bond is an effective, low-cost alternative for organizations with large operations accounts.

  • Non-Profit Groups
  • Homeowners Associations
  • B2B Payment Networks
