Buyer credit insurance

Buyer credit insurance

By taking out buyer credit insurance, financial institutions can insure their claims for payment against a foreign borrower in connection with the financing of a Swiss export transaction.

The insurance can cover payment default due to political, del credere, transfer or force majeure risks. In this context, SERV defines a del credere risk as the insolvency of the foreign borrower or the non-repayment of the loan after one month of its due date.

  • Maximum cover ratio: 95%

SERV offers additional financing options, such as project financing. Aid credits are also available for various countries in the form of mixed credits that are based on international treaties.
