    Our trade credit team has many years of experience in Asia Pacific, providing brokers with specialist insurance protection in respect of emerging markets, political violence, credit and wider political risks. We set ourselves apart because we make rapid decisions based upon a deep understanding of our clients' businesses and the political and economic environment.

    Cover is also available for more complex transactions reflecting the rapidly evolving sources of finance available to our clients and their emerging market counterparts.
