WHAT IS CREDIT INSURANCE?
Credit Insurance is an effective financial risk management tool that safeguards your company against losses sustained arising from non-payment of trade related debts. Credit insurance ensures that your company is not adversely affected by the unforeseen failure or late payment of one or more of your customers; it is also a tool to help you manage your risks.
Coface credit insurance products offer three essential benefits, ensuring the credit you grant to your customers is managed effectively:
- Prevention of bad debts
- Collection of unpaid invoices
- Cash-flow replacement
