What is trade credit insurance and how does it work?
Trade credit insurance protects you against the risk of your customers not paying you when trading within India or overseas. 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.
In addition to being a core requirement of our business processes as directed by our Board, the credit insurance supports our financial controls and helps us minimise the risk of debtors and helps our company to grow and stay healthy.
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 commercial insight 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.
Our team of underwriters are located around the world and continuously analyse the credit ratings of around 240 million businesses. Should your customers' financial circumstances change, we'll 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 our online portal, which you will have access to as part of your insurance policy with us.
Credit insurance can help with your cash flow, as well as 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
