What is trade credit insurance?

Trade credit insurance cover is a practical measure for protecting business liquidity in the event of non-payment of accounts receivable by a key customer.

Why do I need trade credit insurance?

Any company that sells goods or provides services on credit terms is at risk of non-payment due to the insolvency of a key customer (liquidation, receivership or bankruptcy), payment default or continued non-payment by customers. Trade credit insurance also enables exporters to protect themselves against political risks including contract frustration, export restriction, currency inconvertibility and exportation.
