Money Transmitter Bonds – Does Any Surety Like Them?

Money transmitter surety bonds are becoming a difficult class of business to place. The bond is not quite as risky as the quickly fading ICC freight broker bonds, but can be almost as hard to find a surety willing to write it at a reasonable rate.

Many bonding companies feel the nature of the business is simply too risky; therefore they do not write them, period. Other sureties will write them, but only for existing money transmitter companies with extremely healthy business financial statements and a long claim free history. However, there are a handful of bonding companies that realize money transmitter bonds can be written at reasonable rates even for new companies or for owners with a less than flawless history.
