Main modalities of Guarantee Insurance

Credit insurance

Credit Insurance protects against the risk of financial losses arising from installment sales, that is, it guarantees the indemnity of the insured company if it does not receive the credit due by its customers due to default, insolvency (judicial recovery and bankruptcy) or policies events that impact the ability to pay.

Horiens has extensive experience in developing customized solutions for clients with credit exposure, supporting companies in managing these risks, which are enhanced in periods of economic instability and global crises.

In addition to guaranteeing the receipt of future income and managing the risk related to credit losses, taking out Credit Insurance brings the additional benefit of supporting competitive funding rates in the financial market.

Political risks

Increasingly, investors and companies must be prepared to deal with uncertainties arising from macroeconomic and social policy decisions in the regions in which they operate. Political Risk Insurance offers protection against events of political origin that change the expected result and value of a given economic action.

The main coverages for Political Risk focus on expropriation (illegal, arbitrary or discriminatory government actions that lead to the deprivation of total or partial investment or that impact the payment of obligations), political violence (physical damage caused by war, civil war , revolution, sabotage and terrorism, leading to interruption of activities) and impossibility of currency conversion.
