Leading the Conversation on the Future of Surety

April 21, 2021 Future of Surety video

Merchants Bonding Company hosted a virtual event for our agent partners featuring a keynote presentation by Futurist Anders Sorman-Nilsson followed by an interactive conversation with BrokerTech Ventures CEO Dan Keough, Newton Bonding’s President Nick Newton and Merchants CIO Brad Rasmussen.

The event addressed several pain points and fears about the future of surety while also covering what the surety industry should champion as investing in technology becomes key, not optional.

“There are huge amounts of opportunity to apply technology to solve every day problems, and this is no different within the surety industry,” says Merchants CIO Brad Rasmussen. “There are barriers out there but that doesn’t mean we can’t overcome them.” 

The importance of digital transformation in surety and prioritizing innovation is top of mind for many, but with that, comes risk. “Technology is our biggest opportunity, but also our biggest threat,” says BrokerTech Ventures CEO Dan Keough. “We need to lean into it in a great way and as an industry I think we’re getting there.”

Merchants plans to continue the conversation about the future surety and urges everyone to do the same. Connect with Merchants’ CIO Brad Rasmussen to discuss future digital opportunities in surety at brasmussen@merchantsbonding.com.
