Trade Line, a specialist trade credit and political risk insurance broker based in Hong Kong, and Cosmos Services have entered into a strategic alliance.

Trade Line was formed by Jeremy Hampshire in 2003 to develop trade credit and political risk insurance. Cosmos, headquartered in Hong Kong since its inception in 1974, provides insurance and reinsurance broking, risk management consulting, analytical and actuarial services.

The purpose of the alliance is to further expand the specialised areas of Cosmos whilst giving Trade Line access to a network of offices across Asia and London in order to serve a multinational clients database. Through its affiliation with Cosmos, Trade Line will further reinforce its resources and Cosmos will be able to expand in the trade credit and political risk insurance field.
