The use of sureties has grown steadily over the last decade as insurers have started to cover the banks’ guarantee business within their surety activities.

Global Trade Review (GTR) brought together a group of underwriters and banks to provide an overview of why this kind of cover is increasingly sought after by banks and how the business is developing.

Deutsche Bank’s Boris Jaquet, EMEA Head, Distribution and Credit Solutions joined the panel, chaired by Silja Calac, Senior Surety Underwriter at Swiss Re Corporate Services.  He commented that surety is a very flexible instrument and, in Deutsche Bank’s view, “behaves much more like a bank product than an insurance product”. He added, “Not only is it a great tool to optimise capital allocation management, but it remains a very competitive de-risking instrument, which explains its growing popularity.
