An increasing number of public and private contracts today require security for contractual obligations.

However, the need for these products can reduce the availability of bank credit lines and thus unnecessarily limit financing and investments. Surety bonds and guarantees issued by us can help businesses to satisfy counterparties’ requirements for security while helping to preserve other credit lines and thus maintain important room for manoeuvre.
