Security for financiers
Trade receivables are an important asset on your balance sheet and are often used as security for borrowing. ATI's credit risk insurance policy may be assigned to lenders. This helps to reduce the lender's risks allowing you to increase financing for a larger number of receivables and the chance to negotiate better borrowing terms.
Cost effective alternative to Letters of Credit
Credit risk insurance is a cost effective alternative for your buyers because Letters of Credit:
|Require experienced staff to eliminate the inherent risk of documentation errors|
|Tie up the buyer's funds or credit facilities|
|Are costly (domestic interest costs; bank fees; amendment fees discrepancy fees, etc.)|
|May "cost the sale" if a competitor offers open account terms|
