A Worldwide Leader
WORLDWIDE, COFACE PROTECTS COMPANIES AGAINST UNPAID.
THE FOUR PILLARS OF COFACE
- The expertise of business risks
- Protection against unpaid
- Securing sales worldwide
- Financial strength
The Group contributes to the proper functioning and sustainable businesses of all sizes, development, and dissemination of trust between economic actors in the countries where these companies and their customers are located.
OUR EXPERTISE IS BASED ON FOUR PILLARS :
1- The expertise of business risks
In nearly 200 countries, Coface is a global leader in credit insurance and a recognized expert in commercial risks. Our experts secure daily sales and activity of 40,000 companies.
2- Protection against unpaid
80% of companies are facing arrears, which cause a quarter of bankruptcies. One of the first missions of experts Coface is to protect companies against these arrears that may undermine their business and threaten their existence.
3- Securing sales worldwide
Increasingly international, the Coface Group is organized to support the development of businesses around the world with increasing proximity. Our 350 underwriters make 10,000 credit insurance decisions every day.
4- The financial strength
Rated AA-by Fitch and AA- by Moody's with a stable outlook in both cases, Coface has the financial strength necessary to carry out its activity as an insurer. These positive assessments by the two ratings agencies are based on three key drivers: Coface’s strong competitive position in the global credit insurance market; a robust Group solvency and proactive management of Coface’s risks (founded on efficient procedures and tools). Listed on the Euronext Market in 2014, Natixis (bank financing, management and services arm of BPCE, the second French banking group) is a majority shareholder.
Coface can provide its Globalliance credit insurance solution in all of these countries. It enables businesses to cover their subsidiaries too, via a single contract.
