It gives businesses of all sizes the confidence to extend credit to new customers and improves access to funding, often at more competitive rates. Trade credit insurance is for products and services that are due within 12 months.

Cover can be obtained by companies trading within the UK as well as internationally, and in addition trade credit insurers help their customers manage risk by providing guidance and advice about credit risks and new markets to help businesses expand. Businesses can buy trade credit insurance for their entire portfolio of customers, or for individual accounts.

With trade credit insurance, the policyholder knows their business is protected against both commercial and political risks that are beyond their control knowing that money owed to them will be paid. This helps firms to grow profitably, supporting them at all stages of the business cycle and minimising the risk to them of unexpected customer insolvency.

In partnership with credit insurer Euler Hermes, we have developed a free tool to help you better understand your credit risk. Euler Hermes have over 100 years of investment in data, and their global business intelligence is unrivalled. They use expert analysts and technology-driven processes to generate insights and present actionable information to businesses of all sizes and in all sectors.
