Supersedeas bonds are all we do. We have access to a pool of surety insurers and programs that most general insurance agents don’t. Our longstanding relationship with key providers gives us the ability to use a wide variety of forms of collateral when required. The four different types of acceptable collateral are as follows, and can be used in combination with one another:
Using cash as collateral for a supersedeas bond carries several advantages, such as some sureties paying interest on the cash deposit. Another advantage of using cash as collateral is that it can shorten the time it takes to acquire the supersedeas bond versus posting another type of collateral.
Letters of Credit from a Bank
A letter of credit is essentially a promise by a bank to pay a beneficiary (in this case, the surety company) a specified amount upon demand, which is typically equal to the bond amount. Given the liquid nature of a letter of credit, this form of collateral is seen as very similar to cash collateral by sureties.
Real estate is also an option, but there are only two sureties that currently consider taking real estate as collateral for supersedeas bonds. The sureties will primarily consider residential real estate (single and multi-family) and commercial properties (office, industrial, and retail).
This type of collateral includes stocks and bonds held in non-retirement accounts, as well as mutual funds, exchange-traded funds, and money market funds. If the appellant wants to use marketable securities for collateral, they must first provide the surety company with their most recent account statement and the value of the account usually needs to exceed the amount of the bond.
