Non-Payment Insurance (NPI) is considered as the most ideal option for Credit Risk Mitigation for Banks & Financial Institutions providing a robust protection for any Non-Payment event by the Obligor including Force-Majeure Country Risks.

 

Banks, FI's and Investors use Credit Insurance to protect trade finance facilities, general corporate loans, letters of credit and project finance assets against risk of default on scheduled payments. 

For Islamic Trade Finance Banks, we also structure Trade Credit Takaful to cater to Commodity Murabaha and Tawarruq (Reverse Murabaha) lending structures in a Sharia compliant fashion. 

NPI policies are issued by highly rated (S&P / A.M. Best 'A+' and above) established insurers and are generally much less expensive than a letter of credit or BMRP or syndication structure. Coverage typically offers 90% indemnity and maximum limit of liabilities as high as $200MM per insurer for any single risk.
