What is a performance bond?

This type of insurance guarantees fulfillment of obligations stipulated in public and private contracts, whether building, manufacturing, supplying, or providing services. This insurance is provided by the Policyholder in favor of the Insured.


Its purpose is to ensure that the Policyholder (Principal) will fulfill legally or contractually assumed obligations to the Insured party (Contractor).


Performance Bonds have huge advantages over traditional bank letters of guarantee. Performance Bonds offer lower costs, they are issued quickly and, especially, they do not affect the bank credit facility of the Policyholder.
