Bonds and guarantees

A bond or guarantee is a document in which a guarantor – an insurance company or bank – declares that it will fulfil your obligations to a third party if you yourself fail to do so.

Euler Hermes helps businesses with revenues of €15 million and upwards with their guarantee needs for sums of €2 million and more per year. We offer guarantees of various kinds, tailored to suit your company, your needs and your industry.

Why choose Euler Hermes for your guarantee needs?

Working with an insurer means that your credit facilities with your bank remain free.  So you can increase your financing opportunities and maximise your cash headroom. A stable AA- rating from S&P means that Euler Hermes guarantees are also a commercial asset in negotiations with your business partners. Plus, we offer a personalised service, advice with guarantee wordings, value for money and more.
