- financial health and liquidity
- bank lines of credit terms and conditions
- prior job performance experience and references
- prior job gross profit fade experience

And as you plan for the year and years ahead, we will work constructively with your firm to make sure you have adequate facilities in place to meet all your current and future contractual obligations.
Surety Bonds actively manage this process. For bonds expiring beyond completion of works, we will automatically contact you at the estimated date of contract completion in order to obtain Practical Completion Certs or to enable the negotiation of an extension to the bond and the additional costs where it is required. The benefit of catching additional costs early will enable the contractor to pass on or negotiate on these additional costs with the employer.
Submission to Market
Most business owners would not know that every company is listed on at least 10 credit rating agencies and 8 credit insurer databases. A company’s credit rating is their businesses’ most important calling card. If they do not meet a surety’s criteria, the meeting is over before it has even started. The provision of bonds should not be seen as a commodity insurance product but as a strategic financial product which is built on relationships, and when successful, has many advantages. A bond facility should be deemed as important as a bank loan or overdraft facility. The relationship a business owner has with their bank manager should be mirrored with their bond provider.
Surety bonds will assist in building those key relationships, we will work in gathering and presenting all the information required by an underwriter in a detailed manner that gives them a complete understanding of the business. When an underwriter is presented with detailed information, they are more likely to consider the submission in a positive way.
Our process is seamless and requires very little effort from you. As our client you will benefit from both our expertise, and our established relationships with global surety markets.
