Protect your capital and cash flow

We are a team of dedicated professionals who strive to provide exceptional service when it comes to matters of credit risk management.

Trade credit insurance protects businesses from non-payment of commercial debt. The insurance policy ensures you will be paid for goods sold and delivered or services rendered, and allows companies to reliably manage the commercial and political risks of trade that are beyond their control.

Whilst protection of trade receivables is often seen as the primary reason to purchase trade credit insurance, the most common benefit businesses receive by investing in the policy is that it helps them increase sales and profits by identifying those that are credit worthy.

As one of the world’s leading providers of trade credit insurance our specialists will help ensure you are protected against instances of payment default thereby protecting capital, cash flows and relationships with financiers by securing your accounts receivables.
