Trade credit insurance covers your receivables due within 12 months so that your cash flow is safeguarded.

Our information tracks the financial health of your customers and we update you so that you can trade with confidence.

If your customers become insolvent or fall into protracted default, you will be indemnified for the cost of goods and services you have delivered.

Trade credit insurance protects businesses from non-payment of commercial debt. It covers your business-to-business accounts receivable. If you do not receive what you are owed due to a buyer's bankruptcy, insolvency or other issue, or if payment is very late, a trade credit insurance policy will reimburse you for a majority of the outstanding debt. This helps you protect your capital, maintain your cash flow and secure your earnings while extending your competitive credit terms and helping you access more attractive financing.

With trade credit insurance, you can reliably manage the commercial and political risks of trade that are beyond your control. Trade credit insurance can help you feel secure in extending more credit to current customers or pursuing new, larger customers that would have otherwise seemed too risky.

We analyse the credit worthiness and financial stability of your customers.
Each customer has a limit which is the maximum amount we will indemnify if that customer fails to pay.
You trade with your existing customers as you wish, with the risk covered up to the limit.
We keep you informed of adjustments to limits as they may be raised or reduced when conditions change.

Trade credit insurance – also sometimes called accounts receivable insurance – is different from “insurance” in the traditional sense. It is a partnership that provides world-class knowledge and data to empower your trading decisions, backed by a reimbursement guarantee should an unexpected customer non-payment occur.  Businesses that choose trade credit insurance benefit from safe sales expansion – at home and abroad – to new and existing customers. Trade credit insurance also helps you access to working capital while reducing your overall risk.
