Different than insurance, a surety bond is designed to guarantee a principal’s integrity and honesty, performance and financial responsibility, and compliance with a law or contract. Surety bonds are a very old three party arrangement developed over time to help parties to do business with one another. A surety essentially validates the financial strength, capacity, experience and/or professionalism of the professional or performing party minimizing the financial risk and/or business uncertainty of the contracting party.
