Why do you need Credit Insurance?

>> Read our Top 10 Reasons Science & Tech Companies Buy Credit Insurance

For many business, their largest asset (typically 40% of the value) is their sales ledger – which may well be completely uninsured. In a climate of economic uncertainty, credit insurance can really help you sleep at night.  It can also help mitigate the impact of issues further down the supply chain.

Credit insurance can also help you grow your business: 

  • giving you the confidence to trade with overseas businesses, in the knowledge that they're "good for the money" 
  • helping you win business through offering better credit terms - safe in the knowledge that your cash flow is protected 

Non-payments can weaken your company and lower its investment capacity.  Trade credit insurance protects your business against both commercial and political risks that are  beyond your control. It improves the quality of your bottom line and helps you to grow profitably, minimising the risk of sudden or unexpected customer insolvency. 

Imagine a key customer went into insolvency and couldn't pay you...

  • How would it affect your business, cash flow and staff?
  • How would you get your money back?
  • How would you make up for lost profits?

It could only take a handful of these debts to go bad and an SME could end up losing significant sums.  We have partnered up with Euler Hermes the world's largest provider of credit insurance to give you exclusive access to their global risk experts and provide you with useful insights on your market, customers and prospects.
