SERV insures

What does SERV do?

SERV insures Swiss exports against political risks and del credere risk (commercial risk). In other words, we give you, the exporter, the security of knowing that you will be paid for your goods and services. Moreover, our insurance and guarantees help you finance your export transactions and conserve your company's cash. We also advise you on key issues during transactions, including contract drafting.

Apply for an insurance

How do I apply for insurance?

You can only apply for SERV insurance or guarantees through our online application portal. Please note that the information you provide on the application is binding.

Short- or long-term?

How does SERV define short-term and medium- or long-term?

A credit period of less than 24 months is considered short-term. If the credit period is 24 months or more, the transaction is considered medium- or long-term. The credit period covers the period between delivery as contracted and the final agreed instalment payment. It is not affected by the manufacturing period.
