Protection against non-payment and opportunities for development of your business
Insurance of credit risks is one of the best solutions for a company to cover the risk of non-payment of its contractors. This could prevent or limit company’s collapses as well as its liquidity problems.
Deferred payments under export contracts of goods and services are established as practice in the internal and international trade. In order to develop their competitive advantages by offering the clients more profitable conditions and prices in the business transactions, suppliers take increased risk by trading under deferred payment condition. That is why insurance of the receivables of the export or domestic trade, allows the companies to decrease the risk of their business activity, to increase their volumes and to extend their activity on the new markets."
