Surety Bonds & Guarantees

Allianz Trade surety bonds offer a powerful guarantee for the fulfilment of a contract across a wide range of UK industries. 

With Allianz Trade’s financial strength, our surety bond expertise and our alternative to bank bonds, contract surety is a given whilst freeing up bank lines of credit.

In an uncertain and fiercely competitive business environment, having a surety bond gives project owners the confidence to contract with suppliers, safe in the knowledge they will be compensated if contract terms are not met.

A surety bond creates a triangular relationship between you (the supplier or contractor), your employer (the project owner) and a surety bond company such as Allianz Trade.

Having a surety bond in place gives a project owner the confidence they need to contract with you as a supplier.
Our AA rating means our bonds can be relied upon by clients globally, and are often a preferred product.
Our alternative to bank bonds doesn’t restrict your banking credit or reduce liquidity.
Our surety bonds give you and project owners the confidence to tackle ambitious projects.
