Trade Credit Insurance in South Africa is a report about the market for trade credit cover in South Africa. In addition to documenting the development of the market value from 2009 to 2013, the report also divides it for the most recent year between four key segments: between small companies with an annual turnover of less than USD 5 million and larger companies with a turnover above this threshold; between single-risk and annual policies; between export and domestic trade credit insurance; and between protection acquired for political risks and cover bought for business risks.
These unique market splits are based in part on a survey of leading brokers of trade credit insurance in South Africa. This same survey also identifies the underwriters of this type of cover used by brokers on a regular basis, gives an input into Finaccord's estimates for the market shares of underwriters of trade credit insurance in South Africa, provides a basis for commentary surrounding distribution channels used for this type of policy, and informs Finaccord's forecasts for the market value through to 2017.
