Buyer credit insurance

You are a French exporter and you would like to be paid in cash for your export contract. You would like your buyer to obtain a credit at competitive terms. You are a bank and you would like to be covered against the risk of non-payment by the borrower.

Buyer credit insurance


Buyer Credit Insurance covers French or foreign lending banks against the risk of non-payment of loan instalments by a foreign buyer. The insurance covers the principal and interest on the loan, and may include periodic interest and the premium, if capitalised.

With this coverage, the bank pays the French exporter in cash and can offer a competitive loan to your buyer.
If the loan is issued in EUR, USD and other strong currencies, the insurance can be managed in the same currency.
Local-currency loans may be covered on a case-by-case basis.

How much?
The premium rate depends on the debtor’s country of residence, status and capacity, event of loss and duration of risk.
