The placement of bonds and guarantees through the surety market, as alternatives to bank guarantees, can help companies by keeping bank facilities available to meet cash flow requirements.
Bonds and guarantees are written promises to pay for direct loss or damage suffered by a third party as a result of a breach of contract. Many types of bond or guarantee are available for almost any area of risk, subject to underlying security and the risk being acceptable to the guarantor.
They are available on an individual basis however, if bonds need to be placed regularly we can also facilitate this.
We have extensive experience of arranging bonds and guarantees, a selection of the most popular being:
The most common Bond we are asked to place are Performance Bonds, a Performance Bond provides the employer with between 10% and 20% of a contract value in the event of a contractor or supplier failing to perform to the agreed terms. Any company can use Performance Bonds, but are more common in the construction or service industry sectors.
We are able to quote any size of performance bonds with the most competitive terms often without the need for any cash collateral. We can provide Bonds on either standard ABI wording or can have the employers wording agreed if required.
