About Assured Guaranty

Assured Guaranty is the leading provider of financial guaranty insurance. We guarantee timely payment of scheduled principal and interest when due on municipal, public infrastructure and structured financings.  We also provide institutional asset management services.

Financial Guaranty Insurance

In the United States and a number of selected countries, our insurance subsidiaries have long been committed to protecting debt holders from payment defaults and to helping issuers obtain cost-efficient access to capital. We also provide reinsurance to the financial guaranty industry.

For investors, our value proposition includes not only the security of our unconditional, irrevocable guaranty but also our experienced credit selection, underwriting and surveillance, as well as the potential for downgrade protection, market value support and enhanced market liquidity. Issuers use our financial guarantees to lower their cost of funds, broaden distribution and diversify funding sources.
