monoline insurance company


Type of insurance company that provides guarantees to its issuers. These are often in the form of credit wraps that tend to enhance the credit of the issuer. These insurance companies began providing wraps for issuers of municipal bonds, but more recently have provided credit enhancements to other bond types such as collateralized debt obligations and mortgage backed securities.
