The Georgia securities dealer bond is a financial guarantee that securities dealers having discretionary authority over the accounts and investments of customers will act in accordance with the law.

Customers who may credibly evidence instance of financial harm may file against your surety bond and recover losses, but no more than the bond’s $25,000 amount from all claimants.
As principal of this surety bond, any claims paid against your bond are your financial and legal responsibility to reimburse in full to the surety.
