“Our emphasis will be on how to provide more certainty to our traditional products, especially by way of our non-cancellable credit insurance offering. It’s clear that there are some significant shifts taking place in credit quality across the globe and this will continue in the near to medium term. From a client perspective it’s important to know that the credit insurance policy will respond in terms of supporting companies’ current and future sales, funding as well as claims,” says Will Clark, head of AIG UK, trade credit.

“It’s also clear that working together with the finance sector and technology will shape insurers, brokers and well as clients’ business models, allowing opportunity in terms of operational efficiency as well as capital management. Our expanded team will help to reinforce our successes of the past and our growth into tomorrow.”
