INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Banker's Blanket Bond'

A fidelity bond is insurance coverage against losses that occur from the dishonest acts of employees. This bond may be applied to individual employees or to job positions in the company. For example, a bank can insure a specific bank manager, or can choose to insure the position itself, so that any employee that assumes those job responsibilities is automatically covered. Some of the employee criminal acts covered by a blanket bond include robbery carried out by an employee and forgery.
