Most of the times it'll be within construction or development projects where you'll have contractors who says they're going to do the job for an owner and the owner will take out a surety bond covering liabilities and make sure that that job does get taken care of. In the securities marketplace there are a type of surety bond and basically they're most basic in terms of them being insurance contracts. And what that is, is to buy and insurance contract against another investment to basically minimize the downside potential. Usually it takes a little bit of the profit away from the upside but it protects from a total loss many times. So an insurance contract in that sense may be a fairly risky bond and that would be a securities bond or corporate bond for example.
