Are you Treasury listed?

Liberty Mutual Insurance Group has a treasury listing of $1.7 billion as of July 1, 2018.

What size programs do you offer?

Vista is a special surety division serving those accounts which do not easily qualify for standard market credit.  We typically entertain programs with single bond limits up to $3 million and aggregate bonded work programs up to $7.55 million, and single bond deals for one-time transactions up to $10 million or more.

What conditions do you utilize to enhance the credit worthiness of your accounts?

Collateral, Funds Administration, and the SBA Guaranty program serve as our primary tools to enhance our principal’s ability to obtain bonds.  We accept many types of collateral including real estate trust deeds, Irrevocable Letters of Credit ("ILOC"), marketable securities and cash depending on the class of business and the principal’s circumstances.  Funds Administration can be utilized to help mitigate the Surety’s risk and provide assurance that the owner’s funds are properly applied towards the bonded project.
