“We are carrying out a large single contract and we are worried about the risk of not being paid by our foreign buyer.”
Exports of capital goods are exposed to a particularly high financial risk. The payment terms applied in such transactions may span few years and the value of the contract is usually substantial. We insure companies exporting capital goods, such as machinery, equipment, production lines, or performing construction services, against the risk of not being paid under the export contract. Our insurance cover includes political risk in the buyer’s country.
