Export Safe provides modern alternative trade risk management solutions, including Accounts Receivable Put Option Contracts.
Do you sell on open account terms? Do you have any significant customer concentrations? Is traditional trade credit insurance not the right fit?
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)
