About us

Liberty Mutual Surety has underwriting operations in almost 20 countries and is able to issue bonds in more than 60 countries. With industry leading capacity and responsive service, we support the bond and guarantee needs of local companies to the largest multinational construction firms and commercial corporations.

Liberty Mutual Surety is a member of Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, which has an “A” (Excellent) rating from A.M. Best, “A” (Strong) from Standard & Poor’s, and “A2” (Good) from Moody’s. But because we are a mutual company, we can still provide the flexibility and customer focus of a small specialized operator. That is why we are often able to find solutions that other carriers cannot offer.

Unlike most surety providers, we have an in-house Global Service Centre (GSC). The GSC is a team of bond placement specialists with international experience and multilingual capabilities that can issue bonds cross-border throughout the world.

Our surety operations throughout Europe, Asia Pacific, North America, and South America are staffed by local surety underwriters with extensive expertise and understanding of each country’s bonding and guarantee needs. Our underwriters recognize that with business environments changing so quickly, getting fast and flexible access to bonds can be vital to your company’s success. We pride ourselves on our deep market knowledge and understanding of your business, which allows us to deliver superior customer service and develop long-term relationships.
