Surety Alliance Welcomes New Member Firm from Brazil

MDS Brasil joins the Surety Alliance

In August of 2018 international surety organization, the Surety Alliance, officially welcomed its newest member MDS Brasil. This valuable addition extends the Surety Alliance’s capabilities deeper into the South American, European and African marketplaces. Continued partnering with experts in key markets across continents builds on the Surety Alliance’s success in meeting client’s sophisticated international needs as cross border activity continues to rise.

“It is my pleasure to welcome MDS Brasil as our new partner in South America,” states Steve Raffuel of Raffuel Surety Group, “this company, and its professionals, ranks among the largest surety brokers in Brazil, and provides us the added benefit of maintaining full service offices in Portugal, Mozambique and Angola. Their presence in these countries further broadens our goal of providing unparalleled service to customers and prospects around the globe.”

MDS Brazil belongs to MDS Group and has a portfolio of written premiums of R $1.5 billion. Created in 1984 in response to the need for an efficient management of the insurance program of a large Portuguese economic group, MDS Group diversified and expanded its activity. It is currently one of the most attractive brokerage groups in the world. In Brazil, MDS combines high quality in the service of the brand's global prestige.

“We are very glad and honored to be part of SA,” says Victor Garibaldi of MDS, “I have no doubt that this partnership will bring us benefits in business development and professional experience. Be sure that we will make every effort to always offer the best services and solutions to SA members and clients.”
