With decades of experience in surety, much of it in senior roles at leading underwriting companies, our partners have a national reputation within the surety industry. Our background enables us to offer our clients a unique insider’s perspective on the underwriting process, business and risk management philosophies and claims approach of major surety writers. We maintain strong, long-term relationships with regional and national decision-makers at the leading sureties and continually monitor market conditions and industry changes to better serve our contractor clients.
We have guided emerging contractors seeking to arrange their first bond and managed billion dollar co-surety programs for domestic and international contractors. With our in-depth knowledge of how sureties evaluate construction contractors we are able to position our clients to qualify for the capacity they need to execute their business plan and at terms that keep them competitive.
With the increasing complexity in the procurement of construction services, The Hyde Agency brings extensive experience in underwriting the surety requirements of alternative procurement structures. Our partners have worked closely with owners, contractors and surety carriers on design-build, public-private partnerships and Gap financing models.
Our clients include traditional family owned business, private-equity ownership structures and publicly traded contractors. We have successfully tailored surety solutions to accommodate various ownership structures and transitions.
