Issuers use our financial guaranty to lower costs of funds and diversify funding sources. Investors rely on our guaranty for payment of principal and interest when due, and also benefit from our credit underwriting, negotiated terms, surveillance and, if necessary, remediation.
Through its municipal-only subsidiary Assured Guaranty Municipal (AGM) and diversified insurer Assured Guaranty Corp. (AGC), Assured Guaranty provides financial guaranties for municipal bonds, public infrastructure financings and structured financings. Our reinsurance subsidiary, Assured Guaranty Re Ltd. (AG Re), supports the direct insurance businesses and has provided reinsurance to unaffiliated financial guaranty insurance companies.
