Credit insurance protects your business from the risks of non-payment of invoices. This means your invoices are covered. So if your customer can’t pay you, you’ll still get your money.
The best credit insurers get to know you and your business. They work in partnership with you, supporting you with up-to-date intelligence on markets and sectors. You can use this information to help explore new markets with confidence and offer competitive credit to customers. It also gives you a layer of security that banks tend to like when approached for finance.
