With capital goods credit insurance not only can you insure your accounts receivable from delivery to payment, but they’ll also be protected right from the start of production.  This type of insurance is most important for capital goods such as machinery or plant and equipment which have longer production lead times and payment terms to plan for.  Thus high costs can arise even before delivery and risk that the client may become insolvent increases.   

Depending on your needs, capital goods credit insurance not only covers economic but also political risk.  An individual risk assessment and calculation is essential.  It is common for this insurance to be offered in combination with forfaiting.
