Alongside businesses to protect them against unpaid invoices

At Coface, our main mission is to insure businesses – from SMEs to multinationals - against unpaid invoices, which can undermine their activity. In this way, we have designed a range of credit insurance solutions covering 4 key requirements expressed by businesses for export: insuring their sales, financing their development, covering their risks on a case-by-case basis and evaluating markets.
 
This “made by Coface” protection is based on a powerful prevention system: our experts work around the globe to analyse the financial strength of businesses and anticipate payment arrears. Through this continuous review, we provide feedback on all or part of the customer portfolio, complementing and partnering with businesses. 
 
Our in-depth knowledge of buyers and the markets enables us to offer bespoke advice and services, in addition to taking action quickly when risks of unpaid invoices materialize. This responsiveness is possible thanks to the unique close ties established with our customers, backed by our presence in 99 countries. In Romania, the underwriting division along with specialized brokers nationwide and a dedicated Key Accounts team in Bucharest and also in Cluj, keep us alert and help us to be proactive and anticipate risky situations.
Coface is the only provider of integrated credit risk management services in Romania. In addition to credit insurance, Coface offers factoring, business information production and receivables management services in some countries.

This is notably the case for high oil prices that are likely to keep on being fueled by the spillover effect of the ban on Russian oil announced last week by the EU commission; as well as for cereals (Ukraine, Russia & Belarus being large cereal producers). In a context of ongoing disruptions in semiconductors supply, and still spillover effect of the COVID pandemic as shown by the Shanghai port lockdown, the longer the war lasts, the more likely it is that a demand shock will materialize, making the global environment even more adverse.
