With trade credit insurance you cover yourself against default on outstanding receivables by your private or business customers and the resulting losses. With trade credit insurance there is no longer a risk of getting into credit difficulties that force you to take out an offset loan and so incur additional financing costs. You then have greater freedom to do business.

Our service concept is based on the three pillars of credit insurance:

  • Loss prevention
  • Loss reduction
  • Loss compensation


  • Protects you againsthigh losses
  • Secures your liquidity
  • Minimises loss of profit
  • Enables better planning of your business
  • Gives you better control of your risks
  • And therefore contributes to the stability of your business

If you already have credit insurance, we would be pleased to give you guidance about your premium and your conditions (to enable improvements and gaps in coverage).

  • Cover the amount that exceeds your existing credit limit (top-up cover)
  • Trade credit insurance, including legal expenses insurance, for insured receivables is possible
