Euler Hermes > Credit insurance > Our expertise

 

​The need for trade credit insurance arises from the common practice of selling on credit and the demand by buyers to trade on open account, where they only pay for the goods and services after having on-sold  them and are not willing to provide any form of security, for example by way of full or partial advance payment, bank guarantee or letter of credit.


Any business selling on open account terms to other businesses can benefit from trade credit insurance. Euler Hermes’ customers range in size from small businesses to large, multi-national companies. Firms in most sectors of the economy - including business services as well as those trading in goods - use trade credit insurance.
