“When a project involves unusual risks or requirements, such as minimizing environmental impact through the restoration of land, typical underwriting assessment practices can fall short. Applied Surety Underwriters takes a different approach by emphasizing a more thorough understanding of the engineering and other technical aspects of a project. This deep dive method helps us better match surety solutions to the project, protecting the obligee and the principal.”
