Marsh launches online service

The Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) has an arrangement with Marsh to provide affordable and easy-to-arrange bonds of caution. The bonds are underwritten by Aviva.

Marsh has recently launched an online facility as an alternative and hopefully more efficient way of buying new bonds of caution. To arrange a bond of caution please see www.arrangebonds.com
