In the event of a political conflict or trade issue, Zurich offers trade credit solutions to exporters, commodity traders and financial institutions.
Coverages with terms up to seven years give insureds the ability to offer extended or deferred payment terms, which are often essential to build relationships with emerging markets customers. Zurich also structures single-obligor policies, with capacity up to USD $75 million per transaction - so each deal receives the attention and the insurance protection it merits.
To enhance coverage terms, capacity or flexibility, Zurich collaborates with export credit agencies and multilateral institutions to optimize trade credit coverage for insureds. Customized for a wide range of emerging market transactions, Zurich’s trade credit insurance provides an alternative to costly country risk reserves and syndicating credit exposures through a centrally managed policy.
