​Why Trade Credit Insurance?


Each time you grant credit to your customers, your company is exposed to the risk of non-payment. There is a greater chance that a business will experience a loss within its accounts receivable than any other asset. With an average of 40 percent of a company’s assets in the form of trade debts, accounts receivable are a critical component of your balance sheet,  directly affecting cash flow and profitability. Yet while you insure your company against property loss, liability or other unpredictable, high-exposure events, you’re leaving one of your most valuable – and vulnerable – assets open to loss. Accounts receivable coverage through trade credit insurance offers a safer way to do business.
 
Trade credit insurance, also called accounts receivable insurance or trade credit risk insurance, is a financial tool that manages both commercial and political risks that are beyond a company’s control. It is protection against your customers’ failure to pay their trade debts. This can happen when your customer becomes insolvent or fails to pay within the agreed upon timeframe.
