Bid / Contractor / Performance / Surety

Goldleaf Surety Services is a national surety broker specializing in surety bonds.

Teaming up with Goldleaf on surety bonds, allows agents to focus on servicing their existing insurance book while still being able to provide clients with access to almost every type of bond they will ever request. When other surety bond companies are restricted by size, specialty divisions, or other constraints that limit the entire bonding process, Goldleaf brings it all together under one roof for an expedient and pleasant surety bond procurement experience.

Goldleaf currently works with more than two dozen surety companies, and these are among the very best surety companies in the business. All of our markets are rated “Excellent” (or better) by A.M. Best, and all are “T-Listed” (approved by the U.S. Department of the Treasury) for bonding federal contracts. Ranging from “standard” to “specialized” surety markets, our companies provide Goldleaf with an extraordinarily wide range of capacity by size and trade. Goldleaf also maintains licenses in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, so we are able to provide your agency with the convenience of one, stable surety file for clients with multi-state surety needs.

Our in-house knowledge often enables us to respond in situations that numerous surety companies decline. We have an exceptionally strong underwriting group, with broad business experience and excellent analytical skills, and in many cases, our staff is able to find the merits of an account or a particular project where other underwriters have failed. Simply stated, Goldleaf Surety Services concentrates on the possibilities of each bond application your agency sends to us, and we are remarkably good at helping your clients obtain the surety bonds they need to thrive and grow.

Goldleaf Surety Services has markets for contract bonds, commercial bonds, license and permit bonds, court and fidelity bonds, technology and software bonds, private equity ownerships bonds, and miscellaneous bonds.

The Bond Program is available to members nationwide.

Big “I” Endorsed Umbrella Carrier
RLI’s PUP stands atop the existing homeowner and auto insurance to provide an extra layer of personal liability protection for the insured and their family. With RLI’s PUP program, the insured can maintain their auto or home coverage with any company they choose, provided they agree to maintain the mandatory minimum underlying coverage limits. See application for underlying coverage limit. Learn more.

Alternative Umbrella Market
Our increasingly litigious society has created new and complex exposures for individuals. Anderson & Murison’s Primary and Excess Umbrella Liability insurance is designed to help mitigate the significant liability risks individuals face every day. Learn more.


RLI’s Home Business Policy provides affordable coverage for those people who operate small home-based businesses.  Insureds often believe their existing homeowners or apartment-dwellers policy will cover any loss or damage to their business equipment, furniture and supplies in the event of fire, theft or other catastrophe, when in fact, those policies usually explicitly exclude coverage for any business exposures on their premises.  The RLI Home Business Policy, however, is not intended for all types of home business.  It is specifically targeted for over 100 retail and services risks operated from the insured’s residence and presenting minimal product liability, professional liability and/or off-premises exposures.
