Euler Hermes Canada announces the launch of a new Credit Insurance policy designed for smaller businesses called Trade Secure

    MONTREAL, Feb. 4 /CNW Telbec/ - Euler Hermes Canada, a company of Allianz
and Canada's leading private credit insurer, has today launched a new Credit
Insurance policy today designed with smaller or starting businesses in mind.
    The new policy is a radical departure from the standard policy in that it
eliminates the majority of administration and reporting obligations of
standard Credit Insurance policies.
    Euler Hermes Canada's CEO, Paul Flanagan, explained the thinking behind
the new policy :

    "Most Credit Insurance polices are designed for larger companies who have
    the resources to handle the administration involved in policy management.
    However smaller businesses do not have the infrastructure of larger
    companies and so they have not found the standard offering suitable. Our
    Trade Secure policy eliminates most of the administration and all of the
    reporting requirements. In addition, the innovative pricing structure
    lets small businesses pay only for the cover they need and when they need
    it, giving them total control over the cost.

    I'm confident that this new product will make Credit Insurance available
    to a population of smaller businesses previously excluded and offer them
    the protection they need."
