Credit Insurance - Atradius Video

Credit insurance is an invaluable aid to successful national and international business-to-business trade. It covers the risk of financial loss that can occur when trade credit is offered by a business to its corporate customers –  thus providing a set period of credit after provision of products or services before payment is due.

In these circumstances, there is always a risk of non-payment, either because the customer may be unable or unwilling to pay, or because an unforeseen event prevents successful completion of the sales: for instance, a shortage of the currency of the contract in the customer's country, or government intervention, or a natural disaster.

This two-minute video explains what credit insurance is and demonstrates the relationship between the supplier, buyer and the credit insurer.
