Trade credit insurance protects you against the risk of your customers not paying you when trading within Viet Nam or abroad. For example, if your business supplies goods or services to other companies on credit terms, trade credit insurance can protect against your customers failing to pay you. This can be as a result of their business becoming insolvent or sometimes it can happen through no fault of their own, such as political or economic problems.
Our business relationship and our partnership with Atradius really helped us to achieve our ambitious gorwth targets.
As well as offering a safety net against the risk of non-payment, your Credit Insurance Policy can also help your business grow by gaining a competitive advantage in your market. You can benefit from our partners’ commercial insight via Atradius into companies worldwide to help identify opportunities as well as risks, and explore markets that you may not have entered without the protection that trade credit insurance provides.
Both of our partners benefit from our team of underwriters, who are located around the world and continuously analyse the credit ratings of around 240 million businesses. Should your customers' financial circumstances change, they will make you aware of this to enable you to take appropriate action. You may, for example, wish to offer them more favourable credit terms if their credit ratings improve (or reduce credit terms if their credit ratings are not so good).
This information about your customers’ buyer ratings is supplied automatically via an online portal, which you will have access to as part of your insurance policy with BVTM or BV.
