TRADE SECTOR FOCUS: IS THE GLOBAL AUTOMOTIVE SECTOR STUCK IN THE SLOW LANE?
Most of the Credit Insurers who offer export and global trade credit insurance have their own teams of Economists carrying out research and publishing articles, helping Brokers and Clients understand the risk outlook of the economies around the world. As Brokers for the whole trade credit insurance market, Acumen Credit Insurance are in a unique position to have access to all this information and so we have created a monthly Risk Round-Up, designed to bring together key ideas and information in one document. If you are interested in greater depth of the original articles from which this information is taken, please contact your Acumen Credit Insurance Broker or call 0845 073 8630 and we will be able to provide this.
