What risks does Trade Protect cover?

What's Covered

Your policy protects you against the risk of non-payment by your customers.

Where goods have been shipped within the coverage period and accepted by your customer, you will be protected for up to 90% of the losses sustained (capped at the approved Credit Limit).

Examples of why a customer might fail to pay you after accepting the goods:

  • your customer declares bankruptcy
  • your customer has cash flow issues and defaults
  • hostilities in a particular market that prevent your customer from paying
  • issues with currency conversion or transfer
What's Not Covered

Under certain circumstances we will not pay your claim for a loss. For example, we will not pay if:

  • the loss relates to goods shipped outside the coverage period, including goods shipped prior to your applying for coverage
  • the loss relates to goods shipped when your customer was already in default of its payment obligations to you by more than 60 days
  • your customer is disputing the amount they owe you (we can only pay once the dispute is settled and the amount owing by the customer is clearly established)

A complete list of exclusions is set out in the policy.

You are eligible* if:

  • You have NOT yet shipped the goods or provided the services you want to insure.
  • You are looking to insure $500,000 or less per customer.
  • The payment terms you are extending to your customer are 180 days or less.

* Please note certain exclusions to coverage may apply.
