  1. 1. CREDIT INSURANCE Credit insurance provides protection for clients against accounts receivable losses. Companies that sell goods or services on credit terms are highly exposed to the risk of non-payment due to customer insolvency, protracted default and political risks that prevent the buyer from fulfilling its payment obligations. What is Credit Insurance?  Credit Insurance indemnifies the policyholder for the invoice value of goods delivered to a customer but unpaid due to the customer’s insolvency or default.  Policies are written on a 12-month basis, covering goods and services delivered to customers during the policy period.  Premium is charged as a rate on annual credit turnover. The policy features risk-sharing in the form of a self-insured retention. Who Buys Credit Insurance?  Any company that sells goods and services on credit terms (i.e., extends credit to customers rather than requiring payment up front) and is exposed to the risk of non-payment.  Large, medium and small commercial enterprises.  Subsidiaries or divisions of Multinational companies may buy coverage for different regions or product lines locally, or under a coordinated global program.
