January 26, 2023 - Surety Event

The CFMA Honolulu Chapter kicked off 2023 by hosting a surety roundtable event at the HI-BRAU room, above Aloha Beer.  Travis Belling from Travelers Insurance and Robert Saragosa from Philadelphia Insurance fielded questions in regards to best practices they have seen from contractors locally and on the mainland, common financial reporting problems, and how underwriting risk has evolved post pandemic.  It was a great opportunity for CFMA members to hear how sureties have dealt with changesin contract language, price escalation, and building a bonding program on the back of a recovering economy.  Other sureties represented in the audience included Island Insurance (Takushi Nagayama; Zoe Le) and Merchants Bonding (Matt Skelton; Keegan Short), as well as others Travelers Insurance team (Paul Hobby; Katie Porter).  After the presentation, members stayed to enjoy the ambiance of the HI-BRAU room, craft cocktails, local beer, and lots of ono pupus!  Thank you again to all that participated and we look forward to your participation at the next event!
