Assured Guaranty, the leading provider of municipal bond insurance, has helped reduce the cost of municipal finance and protected municipal investors for more than a quarter century. It guarantees timely payment of bonds’ principal and interest through three subsidiaries: Assured Guaranty Municipal (AGM), which issues new policies only in public and infrastructure finance; Municipal Assurance Corp. (MAC), which provides insurance only in select sectors of the U.S. municipal bond market; and Assured Guaranty Corp. (AGC), a diversified financial guarantor. Bond Insurance from these companies makes municipal borrowing more cost-efficient because it creates greater security and market liquidity for investors, who prize not only the unconditional and irrevocable promise of payment but also Assured Guaranty’s credit underwriting, negotiated terms, surveillance and, if necessary, remediation of bonds it insures. The group’s holding company, Assured Guaranty Ltd., is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (ticker symbol AGO) and is held to the transparency standards of both the exchange and U.S. securities law.
