Thousands of companies worldwide guarantee their financial profit through Trade Credit Insurance.

Trade Credit Insurance is a protection against default on credit sales. This type of insurance indemnifies the insured company (the creditor) for nonreceipt of credits granted to its clients (debtors). It can be contracted for credit sales in the domestic market and for financed export operations.

In the current market, your company needs to extend credit to customers, in order to remain competitive. Credit insurance protects the cash flow of your business against the risk of default or late payment of domestic and export credit sales of products and services.

Every credit transaction, guaranteed by insurance, has the participation of:

  • Insurer: Responsible for indemnifying the insured for part of the loss arising from customer default.
  • Debtor: The natural person or legal entity obliged to repay a credit granted in accordance with the terms of a commercial transaction made with the insured.
  • Insured: The natural person or legal entity that purchases the insurance for its own benefit or for the benefit of whoever finances the credit transaction.
