Trade Credit

Trade Credit Insurance – Multibuyer

Trade Credit Insurance is underwritten on a portfolio basis for one business or financial institution with multiple commercial account debtors. This approach can be beneficial to manage credit exposure for a robust portfolio of assets and share a designated percentage of the portfolio default risk with the insurer for greater capital efficiencies and balance sheet protection.

Our highly experienced Trade 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.

Through our U.S. admitted Credit Insurance platform and strategic partnership with the Nexus Group, we can address a full range of credit risks in North America, as well as risk-based eligible domiciles with a focus on G-7 located exposures.
