Credit Insurance News
'Clouds on the horizon': trade credit insurers face higher claim losses, but results should hold up well. Insurance News (Australia) has reported that a new report by AM Best notes that as trade credit insurance is cyclical, with economic crises tending to produce "elevated" trade credit losses, it should be expected that, without any new significant fiscal stimulus or government support measures, trade credit insurers will experience higher loss claims going forward. However, AM Best also notes that trade credit insurers can cut their exposure where required, reducing their outstanding limits to a buyer in trouble. For this reason, "in the absence of a full-blown financial crisis, results should hold up well, supported by continued strong reserving."

Trade credit insurance: A working capital secret weapon. A new article by Marsh notes that although trade credit insurance currently underwrites around £350 billion of economic activity for more than 600,000 businesses in the UK each year, it remains a misunderstood insurance product for many, particularly for UK SMEs, "just 2% of which currently invest in trade credit cover." However, putting in place trade credit insurance and thereby protecting cash flow, can also help businesses gain access to any finance they may need to invest in growth — at a time when access to debt finance for SMEs is once again becoming problematic. "Given that a third of SMEs say access to finance is vital to their survival, but 41% say that business finance is less accessible and a fifth of SME loan applications currently fail, this could be the single most important reason to look closely at trade credit insurance."

More trade credit insurance cover reductions for Iceland suppliers. The Grocer has reported that Iceland Foods has said it remains "incredibly well positioned", despite the decision by Coface to temporarily suspend credit insurance cover to some of the supermarket's suppliers. The Sunday Times first reported that the French credit insurance provider was no longer insuring suppliers providing services to Iceland, following concerns about the impact of the rising energy costs on the frozen food specialist. An Iceland spokesperson told The Grocer that Coface was already looking to reinstate this cover. Coface is the third insurer known to have limited its exposure to Iceland over the past few months after Allianz and Atradius both cut coverage to the supermarket in November 2022.

An upsurge in insolvencies but not a "tidal wave". Coface Group's Chief Economist, Jean-Christophe Caffet, has published an article that warns that the macroeconomic prospects for 2023 "look gloomy to say the least." He suggests that in these conditions, it is difficult not to anticipate a steep rise in corporate insolvencies over the next quarters, and notes that the post-COVID normalisation process has also begun in many countries, such as France — where corporate insolvencies have increased by around 50% over the first ten months of the year. However, he believes that It would probably be an exaggeration to assume there is a danger of "a fully-fledged "tidal wave", of insolvencies." Firstly, the public authorities are keeping a close eye on the situation; and, secondly, the possibility of energy rationing seems to be receding in the very short-term.

After strong increases in the last two years, trade credit insurance premium rates are now declining. Reinsurance News has published an article that notes that a new report from AM Best has found that trade credit insurers continued to enjoy strong results through 2022, despite provisions from the conflict in Ukraine and the sanctions imposed on Russia. AM Best highlighted how, although initial exposures — particularly to Russia — were substantial, trade credit insurers have managed these down quickly. Consequently, it does not expect material losses from insurers' exposure to Russia or Ukraine. AM Best also noted that "due to the good experience of the last few years", premium rates are now declining after the strong increases seen in the previous two years, and trade credit insurers are taking steps to anticipate likely challenges in 2023.

Atradius registered 85% more claims in 2022 than in 2021. In response to the latest updated figures from the Insolvency Service, which highlight that UK company insolvencies in Q4 of 2022 were up 30% on Q4 2021, James Burgess, Head of Commercial at Atradius, has warned that we could see UK insolvencies hit new highs over the coming months. Atradius' claims data also indicates that the number of claims it received for late or failed payments was 85% higher in 2022, compared to 2021. James commented: "This morning's ONS figures confirming 5,995 business insolvencies were registered in Q4 of last year are sobering news, and unfortunately we're likely to see business failures rise across all sectors as the months go on. . . Our internal claims data also indicates businesses are already falling victim to the looming recession, with the number of claims for late or failed payments reported to us in 2022 a staggering 85% higher than in 2021."

The value of trade credit insurance claims in Australia rose by 13% in Q4. NCI Trade Credit Solutions (NCI) has reported that its latest Trade Credit Index (Q4 2022) indicates that, whilst market conditions are still buoyant in Australia, credit insurance claims are on the rise (although coming off a low base over the past three years). NCI notes that compared to Q3 2022, the number of trade credit insurance claims in Australia increased by 7.2%, and the value of claims increased by 13%. There was also a 5.2% increase in the number of serious overdues reported, although the number of collections reduced by 10.5%. Overall, NCI registered 250 claims in Q4 with a total value of AU$21.7 million. The trade sectors with the greatest number of claims were the Building/Hardware and Electrical sectors. Notable businesses entering administration in Q4 2022 included Clough Projects Australia Pty Ltd, Sun Cable Pty Ltd and Elderton Homes Pty Ltd.

Trade credit insurance provides a lifeline for small businesses. NerdWallet has reported that according to the British Insurance Brokers' Association, customer insolvency is the most common reason for a trade credit insurance policy claim. However, despite the protection and benefits offered by trade credit insurance, in an FSB survey in January 2022, just 2% of small businesses had it. Although recent changes in the insurance market "may have affected how easy (and affordable) it is to secure this cover," the article notes that trade credit insurance provides a lifeline for small businesses against the current bleak economic backdrop. Umberto Oliva, Head of Trade Credit and Surety at Verlingue, commented: "Trade credit insurance is accessible for small operations throughout the UK, and some specialist credit insurers do offer products that can be feasible and economical for micro businesses to explore."

How can insurance firms help SMEs amid increased business insolvencies? Insurance Times has published an article which asks industry leaders about what firms can do to mitigate the risk. Tanya Giles, Head of SME Business at Atradius UK, and Andy Hodson, Director of Risk at Allianz Trade UK and Ireland, are quoted. Andy notes that Allianz Trade UK business insolvencies increased by 51% last year, and a further 15% increase is expected in 2023.

Cyber and business interruption are top business threats. According to Allianz Risk Barometer 2023, cyber incidents and business interruption rank as the biggest company concerns for the second year in succession (both with 34% of all responses). However, it is macroeconomic developments, such as inflation, financial market volatility and a looming recession (up from number 10 to 3rd place), as well as the impact of the energy crisis (a new entry at number 4) which are the top risers in this year's list of global business risks. Both natural catastrophes (from number 3 to 6) and climate change (number 6 to 7) drop in the annual rankings, as does the pandemic outbreak (from 4th to 13th place). Political risks and violence are another new entry in the top ten global risks at number 10.

Growth sectors in 2023. At the start of the year and against the backdrop "of rather gloomy economic forecasts", Atradius analysed major trade sectors across Europe, Asia and the Americas to pinpoint where there are opportunities for the current year. According to Atradius' report, some bright spots still exist in the automotive, ICT and pharmaceuticals sectors. For example, Atradius predicts that automotive output in Europe is set to grow by 7% in 2023 (compared to 3.2% worldwide), while ICT will continue to grow in Europe in 2023 before accelerating by more than 3% in 2024. In addition, Atradius forecasts that pharmaceuticals growth will continue in certain European markets — Italy, The Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland.

21,756 UK companies have now moved into Company Watch's Warning Area since the start of H2 2022. Company Watch has reported that the number of UK companies in their Warning Area, and therefore showing signs of significant distress, grew from 990,674 in December to 992,040 in January — a further increase of 1,366 companies. This means a total of 21,756 companies have now moved into the Warning Area since the start of H2 2022. Company Watch also stresses that it is worth remembering that many businesses have taken advantage of the Companies House filing extension and warns that, for this reason, it expects to see an increasing number of companies moving into its Warning Area due to their H-Score® moving as the accounts hit the Company Watch database and algorithm over the coming weeks.

Coface maintains its 1.9% global growth forecast for 2023. Coface's Barometer for Q4 2022 warns that although 2023 has started with the good news that Europe has avoided a recession, we must be careful not to become complacent. "The challenges facing the global economy last year remain relevant, and the multidimensional crisis we are experiencing is not about to disappear." However, although the trend remains towards downgrades in net terms, Coface Q4 Barometer has downgraded only three countries and ten sectors this quarter, after ninety-five in June 2022 and over fifty in October 2022. Meanwhile, Coface has also revised positively the assessments for India and Burundi, and six sector assessments, mainly in the automotive industry, thanks to the gradual easing of tensions in the supply chains. Coface's global growth forecast for 2023 remains unchanged at 1.9%.

UK construction business failures to increase by about 10% in 2023. Atradius' latest Construction Industry Trends report for the UK forecasts that, after growing by more than 5% in 2022, British construction output will level off this year. Increased energy and construction material costs have hit all major building segments. Another issue is the expiry of pandemic-related government support for businesses which now has to be repaid to HMRC. Due to all these factors putting high pressure on the cash situation of businesses, Atradius notes that the number of overdue payments, payment plans, and insolvencies in the sector increased at double digit-rates in H2 of 2022 — albeit from a very low level — and expects business failures to increase by about 10% in 2023. Given the deteriorated credit management situation of the construction industry, Atradius' sector outlook remains "Poor".

Trade & Investment Forum, 2023, 9 March. London. 
The financing of international trade has long been the preserve of banks. But the democratising of investment in trade assets is closer than ever. Bankers, lawyers and fintechs are combining their expertise and drawing on experience from both the capital and trade finance markets to make this happen. There is now a clear recognition and demand for opening up the trade financing ecosystem in order to narrow the trade finance gap to support global supply chains, particularly in emerging markets. In the post-banking crisis era, there is growing interest from non-bank investors for new low-risk, short-term assets providing respectable yields. And as banks expect technology to increase the level of automation of trade finance distribution and start distributing open account transactions — such as unconfirmed receivables and approved payables — transaction volumes will surge. However, apart from through banks – which are largely unablenot always able to meet global demand because of regulatory bank capital and balance-sheet restrictions — an appropriate infrastructure for non-professional and low experience trade asset investors is not yet available. The new Trade and Investment Forum (TIF23) will examine the potential to create an ecosystem and enable a framework to facilitate access to trade finance by advancing the evolution of trade finance as an asset class for investors.
Join asset managers, insurers, pension funds, trade finance banks, fintechs ,family office, sovereign wealth funds and all those interested in alternative investment with risk/return profiles that align with the character of trade finance portfolios, at the first TIF23. Considering the anticipated growth in world trade, it is expected that the requirement for trade financing will increase substantially. Therefore, bankers are increasingly valuing the option to originate and distribute trade finance assets and to participate within more diverse solutions. TIF23 will examine these prospects with top speakers and provide excellent networking opportunities. Come along and be part of this new, exciting initiative which looks at realistic methods of closing the trade finance gap by establishing a wider market for trade assets.
