Our Trade Credit Insurance solution can help you:
- Mitigate risk
- Obtain third-party unbiased credit opinions on account debtors or suppliers
- Facilitate Financing with your leverage provider
Unlike other insurance products Trade Credit Insurance can be leveraged not only as a risk mitigation tool, but also an instrument to increase sales, enhance credit facilities, improve cash flows, and support your credit management function.
At its core Trade Credit Insurance provides protection against bad debt losses and political risks. This allows you to improve cash flow by accurately budgeting premium costs versus trying to forecast a potential bad debt loss and enables you to release bad debt reserves.
Many banks utilize Trade Credit Insurance as “loss payee”. This may allow you to increase working capital by including, once excluded, export receivables and excess concentrations in your borrowing base or obtain more favorable terms due to the enhanced security the insurance policy provides your lender.
Trade Credit Insurance can also complement and support existing credit procedures by obtaining third party unbiased credit opinions on new or existing customers as well as gaining access highly specialized industry and country personnel employed by your insurer.
If you are entering new industries or emerging markets Trade Credit Insurance can help you safely expand into them by offering more favorable credit terms while eliminating the need for expensive letters of credit.
Trade Credit Insurance is an innovative and multi-faceted risk management tool which help you to navigate risk in an increasingly unpredictable world.
Risk transfer provided by credit insurers is vital to the success and stability of trade financing globally.
According to the Berne Union and ICISA, the International Credit Insurance and Surety Association, private trade credit insurers and export credit agency’s support and maintain approximately $4.5 trillion in short term notional exposure at any given time. This coverage is essential to ensure banks and corporates can trade without undue pressure on liquidity or cashflows.
Underwriting at this scale requires an enormous amount of information. While financial information is relatively easy to obtain, payment information is not. Payment information is typically limited to backward looking data with lag time as high as 90 days. Insurers have virtually zero visibility into the real-time payment performance of insured receivables assets until something goes wrong and, in many instances, when it is too late.
LiquidX together with InBlock digitizes and moves this asset class online, allowing Insurers to digitally associate insurance policies with the invoices or assets they cover, offering unprecedented transparency and greater insight into insured transactions.
Once your risk portfolio is digitized insurers can better track actual exposures in real time enabling more efficient use of capacity and coverage as well as obtaining immediate notifications when capacity is free or when payment has not been received as expected.
This enhanced visibility into capacity may allow you to more efficiently utilize capacity and potentially increase written premiums by as much as 20%.
Since digitization allows you to get real-time updates on the status of individual invoices, from purchase order to payment, we can develop alerts and early warning signals based on transactional data which allows you to minimize insured disputes over eligibility, reduce legal expenses and leverage this data to more efficiently adjust claims.
What Is Trade Credit Insurance?
Trade Credit Insurance protects B2B accounts receivable against non-payment risk. Non-Payment risk falls into two categories, Commercial Risks and Political Risks.
Commercial Risks include Insolvency such as Chapter 11, or equivalent in an account debtor’s country, and Protracted Default which is the account debtor’s failure to within a specified period from the due date.
Political Risks include receivable losses due to, but not limited to, Nationalization, Confiscation, Expropriation (CEN), Embargo, Revocation of Import License, Currency Inconvertibility, Transfer Risk, Non-Honouring of a Sovereign obligation and Political Violence.
Receivable PUTs are typically used when there is limited or no coverage available in the Trade Credit Insurance market. PUTs offer non-payment protection in the event a B2B account receivable is unpaid due to the bankruptcy of their customer. Unlike a Credit Default Swap, the purchaser of the PUT must be a vendor to the entity and have a bona-fide obligation due from the bankrupt entity.
