MDS’ special offers in surety further extend our range of products and services. Many countries require that companies acquire specific bonds in order to perform their intended activities. These bonds can be thought of as debt securities, issued either by companies or government entities who guarantee the payment of the original investment in addition to interest, all by a specified date. In Brazil, for instance, bonds center on bid, performance, completion, advanced payment, retention payment, and maintenance. Bonds are also used in tax disputes where guaranties equivalent to the amount of taxes at hand are required. In such cases, bonds can be the ideal alternative to bank guaranties, which must follow the Basel 2 agreement. Additionally, bonds typically have lower rates than banks, as well.
Our expertise in financial risks supports companies whether they’re issuing bonds or presenting guaranties for business or compliance objectives.
