Credit Insurance 101

Credit insurance, also called trade credit insurance or business credit insurance, is insurance for businesses for non-payment of commercial debt. It is generally offered by private insurance companies to businesses seeking insurance for non-payment due to a customer’s bankruptcy or other types of financial difficulties. It can be a critical information and hedging tool for businesses with income streams heavily dependent upon accounts receivable from customers with questionable credit worthiness or that may be facing an industry-based or regional-based financial downturn. The premium is generally based upon a financial review of the customers of the business. This webinar covers these and related topics.
