SECURING SALES WORLDWIDEThe Coface Group is organised to support the development of businesses around the world with increasing proximity. Every day around the world 350 underwriters make 12,000 credit limit decisions.
FINANCIAL STRENGTHRated AA-by Fitch and A2 by Moody's with a stable outlook in both cases, Coface has the financial strength necessary to carry out its activity as an insurer. These positive assessments by the two ratings agencies are based on three key drivers: Coface’s strong competitive position in the global credit insurance market; a robust Group solvency and proactive management of Coface’s risks (founded on efficient procedures and tools). Listed on the Euronext Market in 2014, Natixis (bank financing, management and services arm of BPCE, the second French banking group) is a majority shareholder.
Coface can provide its credit insurance solution in all of these countries. It enables businesses to cover their subsidiaries too, via a single contract.
