The construction industry has been booming for several years now. However, this by no means implies that bond contracts are no longer relevant. Alongside the insurance premium, the required collateral also needs to be given close examination. Many of the surety contracts in the construction industry leave management boards and managing directors with an increased risk of liability.
The machine and plant engineering sector, with its global reach, needs flexible guarantees that can also be applied or favorably transferred to subsidiaries in other countries, often in emerging markets. Bond insurers are usually more flexible than banks and can provide cost-neutral avals in all countries in which they themselves are present.
In the energy sector, which attracts very high levels of investment, surety is a prerequisite for awarding contracts. Wind park operators want to guarantee the purchase of electricity, drilling companies need to guarantee that they will fill the borehole once they have finished the project – and some countries want guarantees ensuring that a fixed number of local workers will be employed. For examples like the above and many more, there are special insurance solutions.
Real estate companies, which use specialized company law structures – usually Special Purpose Vehicles without equity – have the difficult job of meeting the demands of stakeholders, such as city administrations. Here, too, bond insurance can provide the necessary protection.
Investment companies that specialize in restructuring, as well as private equity firms, need a high degree of transaction certainty. Sureties and alternative financing forms provide valuable room for manoeuvre and stability, especially when it comes to challenging or time-sensitive deals.
Whether agriculture and food, tourism companies or sports betting providers: As hugely diverse as the corporate landscape is, the spectrum of sureties available on the market is just as broad. In addition to insurance offerings specific to individual industries, there are sureties for situations common to all industries.
