Guarantees and Surety Bonds

Commissions and Charges

Commissions are charged for services rendered in order to offset credit and settlement risks, and to cover the cost of capital. The commission and expenses billed by the correspondent bank, if any, may also be charged.

A reduced commission rate applies if the principal itself can provide acceptable collateral (e.g. cash collateral, fiduciary investments, securities).
