Construction Law/Performance Bond vs Parent Company Guarantee


Dear Sir

What is the difference between the Performance Bond and Parent Company Guarantee.

What is the advantage of Parent Company Guarantee instead of Performance Bond for the Employer.



Dear Sudantha

Parent company guarantees and performance bonds are collaterals used as surety when the projects are awarded.

PGC or a parent company guarantee in favour of the developer in terms of which that Guarantor guarantees the performance of the contractor under the building contract. When a subsidiary of a Company is working in another location then a Parent Company Guarantee is demeaned by the Client.

A performance bond on the other hand is usually provided in favour of the Client by an independent financial institute (usually a bank) to ensure Performance. This is usually 10% of Accepted Contract Price.

Hope this clarifies your query.
