A bond is a written agreement set up by participants in a relationship in order to guarantee performance, or to provide security against default or non-performance. Examples include bid bonds, performance bonds and completion bonds. In each case, a sum of money is deposited as surety that each party will fulfil their obligations, as the bond may be forfeited in defined circumstances. See also Performance Bonds.
