A/R put option contracts are modern hedging tools widely used in the USA and UK markets. They work in a way similar to trade credit insurance, but are more flexible, with benefits beyond those provided by traditional credit insurance. These risk mitigation contracts are generally available on publicly-traded buyers located in the US, and, to a lesser extent, in Europe and the UK. Export Safe is bringing this modern tool to exporters worldwide. Export Safe exists to find you a solution to mitigate your A/R risk when A/R insurance is not available.

Key features of A/R put options:

  • coverage is non-cancellable 
  • available on single buyers (whole turnover/sales portfolio not required)
  • available for terms of 3 to 12 (sometimes up to 24) months
  • available for coverage limits of $100,000 to $10,000,000+ (depends on credit of buyer)
  • pricing is capital-markets based (non-negotiable)
