“Non-payment to exporters is why this program exists. To know that your receivables are insured is a huge weight lifted. Especially when you’re just starting to export, like I was.”

 — Pina Romolo, President and CEO, Piccola Cucina

Protect the biggest asset on your balance sheet:
Your account receivables

Do you insure your property? Your fleet? Your employees? How about liabilities and data breaches? The answer is probably yes. Yet many companies don’t think about insuring what is probably the biggest asset on their balance sheet—the money owed to them by their customers.

Collecting on a debt is hard enough in Canada, but in other markets, your chances of collecting are even smaller. That’s tough when even one bad debt can be enough to severely impact your bottom line.
