Credit insurance allows companies to protect themselves from suffering losses when their debtors are in arrears, for example, due to insolvency. In such cases, the insurer guarantees that the creditor’s claims will be met. Examples of such insurance policies are export, capital goods, leasing or trade credit insurance. Trade credit insurance covers the risk of losses due to the default of receivables for the delivery of goods or the provision of services. It is the prototype of bad debt insurance, which often also covers receivables from foreign debtors.
