Trade Credit Insurance in the UK

Trade Credit Insurance in the UK is a report about the market for trade credit cover in the UK. In addition to documenting the development of the market value from 2010 to 2014, the report also divides it for 2015 according to six key segmentations:

  • between small customers with an annual turnover of less than EUR 5 million and larger insured entities with a turnover above this threshold;
  • between single-risk and annual policies;
  • between export and domestic trade credit insurance;
  • for export trade credit insurance alone, between protection acquired for political risks and cover bought for business risks;
  • between business underwritten by domestic insurers and that dealt with by underwriters based outside of the UK and with no branch in it;
  • and between business intermediated by brokers and that underwritten directly.

These unique market splits are based in part on a survey of leading brokers and underwriters of trade credit insurance in the UK. This same survey also quantifies the degree to which underwriters of this type of cover are utilised by brokers on a regular basis, gives an input into Finaccord's estimates for the market shares of underwriters which are expressed as a likely percentage range (e.g. 5.0% to 7.5%), highlights the most important brokers of trade credit insurance in the UK, provides a basis for commentary surrounding distribution channels used for this type of policy, and informs Finaccord's forecasts for the UK market value through to 2018.

Key features of this report include:
  • quantification of the market size for trade credit insurance in the UK: how much is the market worth, how has it developed since 2010 and how does it break down into key segments?
  • presentation of the estimated market shares of underwriters of trade credit insurance in 2014 based on both the broker survey and other available data sources;
  • audit of the frequency of usage of underwriters by major brokers of trade credit insurance in the UK: to what extent are new entrants or smaller competitors effectively challenging the main incumbent underwriters?
  • availability of an accompanying PartnerBASE™ dataset that logs partnerships for trade credit insurance identified by Finaccord across a combined total of more than 50 leading banks and major trade associations;
  • forecasts for the likely value of the market for trade credit insurance in the UK in 2018.
