Bonds Insurance

Historically, banks have usually provided bonds. A bond is not an insurance policy per se but essentially a form of financial guarantee. It is a guarantee by one party (the surety or guarantor – the insurance company) to another party (the obligee - the person requesting the bond) that a third party (the principal - the person required to provide the bond) will meet its contractual obligations.

We provide cover for the following listed bond (guarantees):

  • Performance Bond
  • Advance Payment Bond
  • Tender for Bid Bond
  • Customs Bond
  • Credit Bond
  • Supply Bond
  • Counter- indemnity/Guarantee Bond

  • Completed Bond Proposal Form
  • Certificate of Incorporation/Registration
  • Letter of Contract Award
  • Contract Agreement
  • 3 Years Audited Statement of Account
