Credit Insurance Companies List

Credit insurance for business (known also as trade credit insurance, export credit insurance, debtors insurance, accounts receivable insurance) has an important role to companies because it protects them from loss due to different credit risks such as non-payment of trade debts and bankruptcy.


In simple words, credit insurance companies protect your business against the failure of your customers to pay their trade credit debts owed to you and their policies cover the risk of losses caused by non-payment of buyers.

Trade credit insurance companies can also provide a feature of political risk insurance which protects against the risk of non-payment by foreign buyers due to political unrest, currency issues, and etc.
