The fewer the risks, the better the night’s sleep

In most cases, the risks associated with your company’s export trade arise from your customer’s inability or unwillingness to pay or from the country where the customer company is located. If the realisation of an interesting deal depends, for instance, on granting a longer payment period, we can insure your agreement against credit losses.
