Overview

Is accounts receivable one of your largest assets? Did you know there is insurance for the asset accounts receivable? These are good questions to ask when you think about insurance for your company because accounts receivable exposure is one of the least insured risks. Without protection on your accounts receivable, there may be a gap in perceived risk mitigation if a company’s customer defaults on a payment.

Trade credit insurance provides sellers with the accounts receivable protection needed to safeguard themselves against a customer default due to financial or political events. Our solutions range from policies that insure all or part of a seller’s account receivables book to a host of industry-leading licensed online tools that allow sellers to manage and set customer credit limits using live sales ledger data.

Trade Credit Products and Services

A/R Secure

A/R Secure is an innovative trade credit product which combines “ground up” cover with non-cancellable credit limits. A/R Secure is easy to set-up and works by connecting to a client’s accounting package, allowing credit limits to be automatically calculated based on real time payment history or set by an underwriter. The client is not required to undertake any buyer analysis to justify coverage. A/R Secure can also increase productivity, supporting and building on existing credit management procedures.

Medium Term Trade Credit Insurance

Whether an OEM or lender, companies offering longer repayment terms are exposed to multiple economic and geopolitical cycles that magnify the risk of non-payment due to customer insolvency, protracted default and political events.

Protection for companies that sell goods or services on credit terms against the risk of non-payment due to buyer insolvency, protracted default, political risks or acts of war that prevent contract performance and failure to perform obligations under contract.
