Surety bond insurance protects surety company from such losses. This encourages your surety company in providing you with your desired bonding capacity you want to make international sales.


Costs of surety bond insurance depend on a number of factors like period of the guarantee and risks associated with the project. To qualify for surety bond insurance, a number of factors are evaluated like terms of the contract, financial, technical and managerial capabilities, bonding instruments, economic and political conditions and other outlooks in customer’s country.


You need surety bond insurance if our business depends on obtaining a surety bond. For such businesses to be able to secure coverage it is necessary to be a good risk.


Businesses can take the following measures to establish themselves as a good surety risk:

  1. Recognise your capabilities – Maintain discipline. Concentrate on work that can be handled by your organization and resist temptation.

  2. Manage bank financing – Avoid maximizing your bank line of credit. Maintain good bank borrowing capacity availability.
