The current principals of SRS developed the idea of an intermediary for financial guaranty insurance in 1980, anticipating prospective convergence of the banking, insurance, and capital markets. Drawing upon the critical disciplines of investment banking, insurance, finance, and engineering, the principals of SRS created a unique multi-disciplined group capable of capitalizing on the converging markets. From that initial venture, the current structured finance and securitization unit emerged. The original company was known as Securities Guaranty Insurance Services (SGI) and was very active in US securitization and credit enhancement in the capital markets.

In 1990, the principals of SGI entered a joint venture with Special Risk Services, Ltd., a global London based Lloyd's of London insurance broker. Together the structured finance group matured to specialize exclusively in providing services to the financial banking and capital market sectors worldwide.

SRS was acquired in 1995 by Minet Limited, a London based top ten global insurance broker firm (owned by the St. Paul Companies). In April of 1997, the AON Group purchased Minet and the SRS team became a member of AON Capital Markets, the investment banking and financial division of AON Group. Based in Chicago, AON is currently the world's second largest insurance broker and risk management consulting firm.

SRS was purchased from the AON Group in April 1999 by the current principals and continues its activity and specialization in securitization, structured finance, and the placement of financial guarantee insurance and other forms of credit enhancement in capital market transactions worldwide.
