PARIS – 14 NOVEMBER 2013 – Euler Hermes was named best global trade credit insurer in the 2013 Global Finance awards for “Best Global Insurers”, repeating its achievement in the 2012 Global Finance “Best Global Risk Management Providers.” Global Finance is a monthly magazine for corporate leaders, bankers and investors with a readership in 163 countries.
