Atradius Modula Start Now Available in Canada

    New trade credit insurance policy to be offered through RBC Insurance's
    Agreement with Aon Reed Stenhouse

    OTTAWA, June 24 /CNW/ -- Atradius Credit Insurance N.V. today announced
the introduction of the Modula Start policy in Canada. Modula Start is the
latest product in the Atradius Modula family of products launched in 2006 and
is designed to provide small and mid-sized companies with comprehensive yet
easy-to-understand credit insurance to protect them against the risks of
non-payment of their customers.
    The Modula policy is a unique concept which allows Atradius to meet the
specific credit insurance needs of customers in a flexible and transparent
    According to Ian Miller, Atradius' country manager in Canada, the new
Modula Start policy enhances this concept further for small to medium-sized
enterprises (SMEs). "Smaller businesses also need to protect themselves
against insolvencies of their buyers. Recognising that owners of smaller
companies -- that is, those with sales of up to $2,000,000 -- have so many
responsibilities, the Modula Start policy is designed to be easy to administer
and cost efficient. Most important, it provides the first-class quality of
coverage enjoyed by large companies."
    The Atradius Modula Start program is designed to be distributed through
cooperation partners. In Canada, Modula Start is currently only available
through RBC Insurance at 1-877-91-ROYAL (76925) as brokered and managed by Aon
Reed Stenhouse.
