To protect your business from credit risks:

What is Trade Credit Insurance?

Trade credit insurance protects your business from the risk of non-payment by your customers. For example, if you sell goods or services on credit, this insurance can protect you against the losses that would be incurred if your customer does not pay your bill. Our trade credit insurance solutions can protect your business with both domestic and international trade. In addition to providing peace of mind, trade credit insurance can help your business explore new markets with confidence knowing that you will be paid while you benefit from our insights and market knowledge.


Our partners and we work alongside you or your broker to assess the creditworthiness of your customers. If they – and the market they operate in – are credit worthy, our partners will insure the credit terms of your trade with them. Our partners and we will continue to monitor your customer and the market and will inform you of any changes that could affect their credit worthiness.

Credit insurance can help with your cash flow, as well as providing a range of benefits including:

  • Increased access to finance, as we can provide your bank with the reassurances it needs when extending finance to you
  • A reduction in your bad debt provision and, in turn, a healthier balance sheet
  • The confidence to seek out new markets and customers, and benefit from the growth this may bring
