About Coface

Our Strategy


"The success of Fit to Win places Coface in an excellent position to tackle this new stage of its development. Our new strategic plan Build to Lead will leverage the achievements of Fit to Win.
It will deepen and broaden the business and cultural transformation underway at Coface to be recognized as a reference in the industry.
Build to Lead will also aim to develop the specialty businesses (factoring, single risk & bonding, information services) which benefit from the global Coface infrastructure and can generate profitable growth opportunities.
The commitment of our employees and partners throughout the world will drive our success and the quality of our client experience.”

We are dedicated to our clients. Client Focus is a value shared by everyone who works in our organization, whatever their role.


We monitor economic risk to help our clients understand potential risk and promising opportunities for their businesses.


We think of our clients as partners. Those of us who work in support functions have internal clients, and share the same client focus mindset.

Over 70 years of experience in credit insurance and risk management are the foundation of Coface’s expertise.


Expertise provided by an active community sharing a passion for trade: 4,100 experts serving 50,000 businesses.



Collaboration is at the heart of our organization. Cooperating closely – collaborating – is a state of mind, and a prerequisite for the success of our business.


At Coface, relational intelligence goes hand in hand with economic intelligence, which is how we envisage the relation we have with our clients, internal or external.


Relationships based on listening, sharing and building trusting partnerships are what we value most.


Courage & accountability

Ours is a profession of conviction, calling on courage & accountability.


Every client situation is different and the future remains fundamentally uncertain.


In an economic world, in constant flux, our experts represent a compass for our clients everywhere in the world.
