The Surety Alliance™

The Surety Alliance™ is a recently formed peer group of professional contract and commercial surety brokerage firms represented in major money centers throughout the United States, Canada, as well as Germany and Brazil. We pool the combined talents, market knowledge, and relationships of The Surety Alliance members in a structured manner that allows us to outperform our competitors at all levels: local, regional, national and international, by providing our respective clients with an unparalleled array of services and expertise. We invite you to visit our website for more information on the group and the member firms.

Member firms are surety brokers who are differentiated by the following common traits:

  • The brokers are all surety specialists. Surety represents a key product line of each firm, and the individuals are all professional, entrepreneurial, experienced surety people, many of whom with prior surety underwriting experience.
  • We are regional (or in a few cases ‘multi-regional’) firms who recognize the value in a global reach as a means of enhancing our businesses and competing with larger, multi-national brokers.
  • We all maintain sound reputations in our respective geographic regions amongst the bonding markets and within the surety and construction community.

The group has trademarked the name/logo Surety Alliance and represents a combined surety premium base exceeding $250 million.

Our success in the Industrial Electrical Marketplace has been, and continues to be, strengthened by your service, support and advice.
