For the first time this year, paid claims are expected to fall in the coming quarter

With global merchandise trade continuing to grow beyond its pre-pandemic levels and global foreign direct investments finally showing signs of recovery, it is no surprise that demand for export credit insurance increased in the second quarter of 2021.

Despite a diverging trend between different product lines in terms of emerging claims insurers are increasing their risk appetite in line with positive economic forecasts and a healthy pipeline of projects in development.

The results of our Q3 survey, conducted in August 2021 are presented in this report.
