Trade Credit Insurance

Together with Marine Cargo Insurance, Trade Credit Insurance is the protector for manufacturing and trading companies during transactions with their customers. While Marine Cargo Insurance covers the physical loss/damages to the cargo during transit and before reaching the buyer, Trade Credit Insurance protects the sellers from non-payment exposures. This insurance works much more efficiently than traditional methods of seller-protectors such as L/C due to its simplicity and wider protection.

Why is trade credit insurance necessary?
  Running a business of any size is never easy and trading risks are always present, particularly when trading internationally on credit payment terms, where the potential for non-payment is always a possibility for many reasons.
  If you have already experienced the pain and disruption of payment default, as a result of customer’s insolvency, for example, you’ll probably want to avoid it happening again, which is where credit insurance can help protect your business against these risks.
What is trade credit insurance?
  Credit insurance is simply a way of protecting your business against the risk of not getting paid when you’re trading on credit payment terms. Once the goods have been dispatched and your customer has accepted delivery, they are obliged to pay you by the due date. However, if you don’t get paid, then the credit insurance policy covers you against this potential financial loss.
What will my policy cover?
  Most credit insurance policies are normally tailored to suit the specific needs of an individual business and take into account your customers’ trade sectors, the level of credit allowed, the country in which they’re based and a range of other factors to ensure the cover meets your precise needs.
  Ultimately, a credit insurance policy can cover the risk of financial loss caused by a range of factors, such as:
Customer insolvency
Suspension of payment
Protracted default
Public buyer default
Government moratorium
Foreign exchange shortage
Transfer risk
War, civil unrest and political risk
Contract frustration
License cancellation
