Surety Jardine Lloyd Thompson has a long involvement in Surety from the late 1800’s when we wrote our first bond for the transportation of merchant products across the China seas. At JLT Canada, our Surety Professionals come to us with various backgrounds in areas such as finance, underwriting and broking. Our professionals are able to assist our clients in contract review and risk assessment. This enables us to work more efficiently with our clients and underwriters to ensure that the information required for proper underwriter review is obtained. This value added service helps to ensure that the surety process is seamless. By working closely with and fully understanding the needs of both our clients and the surety companies, we are able to select the markets that best fit each clients specific requirements, thereby securing the optimum level of support required for bid, performance and payment bonds. We have a proven ability to deliver solutions to the risk exposures faced by our clients both locally and internationally. Our comprehensive awareness of market conditions, coupled with assertive negotiation, has enabled us to fully meet our clients’ needs even when there have been few, if any, alternative markets available.
