    What is Trade Credit Insurance?
    chevron

    Trade credit insurance, sometimes also known as Accounts Receivable Insurance, protects your business in the event of a customer failing to pay a trade debt.

    Trade credit insurance covers B2B accounts receivables and protects your business from non-payment of commercial debt due to a buyer's bankruptcy, insolvency, and other insured risks.

    Trade credit insurance protects your capital, maintains your cash flow, and secures your earnings while extending your competitive credit terms and helping you gain access to better financing.

    With trade credit insurance, you can transfer commercial and political risks of trade that are beyond your control to an insurer so as to give you good financial footing to extend more credit to existing customers or when you are pursuing new, larger customers that would have otherwise seemed too risky.

    You should consider investing in Trade Credit Insurance for your business if you are looking to:

    • Grow your sales safely and with confidence to new and existing customers
    • Provide better financing terms to your customers to capture more revenue opportunities
    • Maintain cash flow and profitability by mitigating your risk of bad debt
    • Make better business decisions by accessing your risk data easily
    • Protect your business against non-payment and catastrophic losses
    • Expand into new international markets, backed by protection from unique export risks and the market knowledge provided by our insurance partner
    • Reduce bad-debt reserves and free up capital
