Single Situation Solutions

Credit Insurance is underwritten for a single debtor, owing monies to the insured. This encompasses the sales of goods or services from an insured seller, as well as amounts owing to a financial institution with regard to the financing of a project or other forms of bank obligations.

Our highly experienced Credit team is active in insuring bank-to-bank obligations, allowing the insured financial institution to increase its exposure to acceptable banks. Coverage is available for both short- and medium-term tenors.

Credit Financing Strategies

Financial institutions may leverage credit financing strategies, including, but not limited to, the confirmation and refinancing of letters of credit, bilateral trade loans, participation in international syndications and prepayment of export financing.

Credit Insurance can be underwritten on private obligors, as well as public sector sovereign and non-sovereign entities.
