QBE Products | Bay of Plenty

By: ExportNZ  06-Dec-2011

Below we have listed some of the products on offer from QBE, which is a national sponsor of ExportNZ. There are many insurance companies operating in New Zealand and they all have to have a credit rating, which manufacturers should take note of when engaging an insurer.


Trade Credit

Protection against bad debt

Our products protect businesses from commercial bad debts that arise when selling your goods and services on credit terms to other businesses within New Zealand and/or overseas.

Our credit insurance solutions for both domestic and export transactions are available for companies of all sizes - from those with credit sales of less than $1 million, up to the largest corporations. QBE applies a flexible and innovative approach when tailoring credit insurance risk management solutions to meet your requirements. For example, we offer exporting companies an optional extension of cover for Contract Repudiation Insurance and Political Risk events.


Contract Works

QBE is able to offer security on everything from commercial and residential construction through to complex, civil engineering projects.

Contract Works Insurance provides protection during construction (and if required during any maintenance period) on either an annual or single project basis.
