Matson-Charlton Surety Group (MCSG) traces its origins to 1959. Since that time we have specialized in the placement of all types of surety and fidelity bonds for our clients. We began doing business under our current management in 1992 by bringing together two organizations with vast experience in surety and fidelity bonding.


The management team of John W. Charlton and D.W. Matson III, have over 60 years of combined experience in the surety/fidelity industry and bring different perspectives to the business. We know how to relate to the client as well as the surety. MCSG has relationships with most of the A-Rated companies that write surety and fidelity business throughout the United States and abroad.



Matson-Charlton Surety Group is a member of various industry-related professional organizations. The agency is an active participant in forums that affect the surety industry and its clients.
