Why credit insurance?Your benefits
Credit insurance protects you against default. If your customer fails to pay you, you will be compensated by your credit insurer.
Credit insurance is also proactive: it limits your risk of unpaid invoices by analysing the creditworthiness of your customers.

Our solutions for credit risks you cannot cover, or only cover partially
Sometimes your credit insurer will only approve a part of your credit limit application. Or it is not prepared to insure one or more of your transactions. It may also refuse to cover the long-term credit risk of your projects, or to insure a political risk.
CRION will find a solution for these uninsured risks. We can identify the insurers and other financial service providers who are prepared to offer you supplementary or selective cover
Non-cancellable credit limits
We negotiate limits on your behalf that your credit insurer cannot cancel for up to 12 months. You then have the certainty that you can continue to deliver with cover through your credit insurance throughout that time.
Extended credit limits
We can arrange an additional policy with your existing or another insurer to provide top-up cover. In the best-case scenario, this can double the credit limits approved under your first policy.
Partial credit insurance
With our help, you can insure a single transaction. Or just the transactions you conduct with one or more of your customers.
Long-term credit insurance
For credit insurance for projects that run over several years, we find solutions with specialised insurers.
Insurance of political risk
Insuring the risk that the political situation in your customer's country changes in a way that threatens your payment? We know the insurers that will cover that risk.
Increasingly, entrepreneurs are falling victims of fraud and computer crime. So complement your credit insurance with this valuable cover.
Insuring exceptional risks only
We will find you Excess of Loss credit insurance to cover just the exceptional risks that you cannot or do not want to bear yourself.
Your own insurance company
We will support you in setting up a captive to cover your credit risks.
Our associated solutions
If you are confident that your credit management is robust enough to manage your credit risks appropriately and you therefore decide not to take out credit insurance, you yourself are responsible for obtaining commercial information and for debt collection. In this case, we will direct you to the experts who can best support you.
Even if you have credit insurance, you may decide to enlist the services of others in addition to the credit limit information provided by your insurer and/or the debt collection services it provides. We know the commercial information providers who are most familiar with your customers' home markets.
To minimise the risk of your customer becoming insolvent and therefore unable to pay you, you can obtain commercial information about its financial position.
CRiON knows the information sources that you need. Worldwide, because not every commercial information provider is equally at home in every market.
No matter how well you assess your credit risks it is always possible that a customer may be unable or unwilling to pay you. You then have to rely on collection.
We give you access to a global network of debt-collection service providers and select the best partner for you. So that you will still be paid.
