Business Confidence Index Q1.21 Published
A new quarterly report tracking perceived demand, risk appetite, and claims in the export credit insurance industry
From 2021, the Berne Union has launched a new continuous Business Confidence Index to provide an indicator of the overall perception of demand, risk appetite and claims in the export credit insurance industry.
The Index is based on quarterly snapshots of our Members’ assessment of their current and imminent business situation with respect to these factors. In line with industry norms, we distinguish between short-term (ST) and medium to long-term (MLT) commercial and/or political risk.
The results of the first survey, conducted in January 2021 are presented in this report.
