With a focus on large credit lines, AIG has the underwriting expertise, capacity, and global reach to customise a surety bond precisely to the needs of your business.

Free up capital

Surety bonds are a viable alternative to bank guarantees or letters of credit, improving the liquidity of your business by freeing up bank lines for working capital and possible acquisition financing.

New opportunities

Transferring the risk of contractor default to a surety bond opens up your job tender opportunities, supporting order book grants and cash-flow.
