Trade Credit

Business protection from the impact of payment default by key customers


AIG provides the security your company needs to trade internationally and domestically by insuring your accounts receivables against the risk of customer non-payment arising from insolvency, protracted default and political risks.

Why get Trade Credit Insurance?

By protecting against the risk of customer default, trade credit insurance is a key instrument in your company’s credit risk management. With trade credit insurance, your company is assured of the support on cash flow and liquidity at any time. Trade credit insurance enhances your company’s credit standing and facilitates more attractive financing terms. With reduced credit risk, your company can expand existing markets and establish new ones with greater confidence.

Who is it for?

Trade Credit Insurance protects open account sales - export and domestic - against non-payment resulting from a customer's legal insolvency, protracted default or political risk.

What is covered?

Apart from protecting the insured's primary source of cash and the accounts receivable, our coverage can potentially enable the insured to expand sales in new markets and offer more competitive terms of sale.
