New Business

Jennifer NG

Jennifer Ng, Sales Manager
Jennifer explains what you can expect when you call Atradius Sales.

When a potential customer calls our office, I will talk through the details of trade credit insurance. They will be briefed on the benefits it can bring to their business, I will give an outline or indicative policy structure to suit their requirements and I’ll explain how the pricing is calculated.

The next step is to organise a meeting. We will sit down with representatives from the business and learn how they operate. We will suggest ways they can improve their risk management and discuss how they can expand their export sales.

My role in Atradius Sales is to provide bespoke solutions to help protect a business from potential financial loss. Building a relationship with customers is the most rewarding part of my role and I focus on gaining a good understanding of their business so that we are able to provide the best solutions for them.

Debt Collections

Quintus Deken

Quintus Deken, Regional Head APAC & Middle East, Atradius Collections
Quintus explains what you can expect when you contact Atradius Collections.

People come to Atradius Collections via different routes. If you are an Atradius Credit Insurance policyholder, we work alongside you as part of your policy to reduce loss and recover debt if your customer fails to pay. We also operate on a standalone basis to provide professional international debt collection services to businesses that do not have Atradius Credit Insurance.

Every unpaid invoice is unique so, for us, the first step will be to complete due diligence. It is important for us to understand the nature of the debt. Has the debtor gone bankrupt, are they experiencing cash flow issues, is there a contract dispute, are there political circumstances beyond their control? Where possible we reach out to the debtor to aid our understanding of the situation and to begin dialogue.

Our focus is on personal contact. We use our global reach to contact the debtor wherever they are in the world, either by phone or in person. Our approach is professional and respectful and you can be assured we comply with local law and regulations. We will liaise with you at every stage of the collections journey and agree the strategy that works best for your business. If you are an Atradius Credit Insurance policyholder, your claims manager will collaborate and communicate closely with your Collections account manager.

Where possible we mediate to resolve disputes and create payment plans with your debtor, focusing on maintaining a good relationship. Where it is not possible to recover the debt amicably, we will consider legal actions. . Once our amicable collections activities are exhausted and the only route forward is to take legal action, we will define a strategy for you, estimate the expected costs, and will advise on whether it is economical to proceed.

Risk Underwriting

Petr Racek management board

Petr Racek, Regional Head of Risk for South East Asia & Head of Marine Underwriting
Petr explains what you can expect from our underwriting team.

Our Risk Underwriting Department is a team of professionals who work closely with account managers to issue prompt and accurate credit limit decisions. Each of our underwriters specialises in a particular sector or area. They keep on top of market developments and the creditworthiness of your customers to make sure every decision accurately reflects the level of risk facing your trading environment.

Our focus and objective is to issue decisions to facilitate trade. Where we cannot accommodate a request for a specific credit limit, we work with you to find a solution. For example, we can help you avoid high-risk situations. If you have a query over a credit decision, our underwriters will explain their decision and share key market data with you.

Your key underwriter will work closely with you to understand your business and, where appropriate, will enjoy regular meetings with you and your account manager, as well as your customers.
