Working with Coface

At Coface, we value the role of the broker channel in the business community.
There is no need for brokers to be specialists in credit management, we have a dedicated broker support team who will help brokers secure their client's business and help run the policy afterwards.

A ten-strong judging panel assembled by the ICM concluded that Coface had set the standard in credit insurance over the past year, delivering a high quality service as part of a broad strategic vision; and a proven track record of success in terms of innovative and profitable expansion, commenting that:

"This company shows how even the major players can react and adapt to customer needs, regardless of whether they are Blue Chip or SME. A clear focus on partnerships was evidenced in a high level of client satisfaction."
