Frequently Asked Questions
What is a bond?
A bond in insurance is a type of financial instrument that provides protection to the obligee against certain types of risks. It is a contract between three parties:
- the principal (the person or entity who purchases the bond),
- the obligee (the party who is protected by the bond),
- the surety (the insurance company or other financial institution that issues the bond)
A bond ensures that the principal fulfills their obligations or meets certain requirements, and provides a source of financial compensation in case they do not.
