Subcontractor Default Insurance

OnDemand Webinar (86 minutes)

Know the pros and cons of subcontractor default insurance so you are prepared for your next project.

Are you involved on a complex and large-scale construction project, whether from the owner or general contractor's perspective? If so, has the topic of subcontractor default insurance (SDI) been discussed? If you are involved in such a project, SDI is an important topic since SDI would generally serve as an alternative to requiring subcontractors to obtain performance bonds. SDI is a first-party insurance policy, but operates differently than the first-party insurance policies you typically think of such as a property insurance/builder's risk policy. SDI is not a performance bond and operates differently than a performance bond. SDI is designed to cover more catastrophic-type defaults and can be a useful insurance policy on well-managed projects. This topic will explain the differences between a performance bond and SDI, discuss how a SDI policy operates, and touch upon the positives and negatives of SDI.
