Are you protecting your largest Asset?
Trade Credit Insurance
Accounts Receivable comprises about 40% of a company’s assets, so defaulted and delayed payments can significantly harm your cash flow and hamper your ability to fund overhead and production.
What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Trade Credit?
To promote growth, many companies allow clients to purchase a product, now and pay later—this is known as “trade credit”.
Unfortunately, studies show that at least 1 in 10 payments are late, or worse: turn into bad debt, according to Insurance Business Magazine. In addition to the usual reasons for nonpayment—insolvency, insufficient funds, or bankruptcy—the current global pandemic is exposing all businesses to higher levels of trade risk for nonpayment.

That’s because international factors such as economic and political stability can severely impair a client’s ability to pay an invoice. And, since Accounts Receivable comprises about 40% of a company’s assets, defaulted and delayed payments can harm your cash flow and hamper your ability to fund overhead and production.
Trade Credit Insurance can help protect your cash flow by insuring some or all of a customer’s bad debt.
