what is trade credit insurance brain video
Also 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. It also helps you access to working capital while reducing your overall risk.

It 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, the 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. It can help you feel secure in extending more credit to current customers or pursuing new, larger customers that would have otherwise seemed too risky.
