Global Credit Insurance - Case Study
A Japanese holding company operates a worldwide electronics network consisting of 35 subsidiaries and approximately 100 sales offices.
The holding company is decentralised, allowing its subsidiaries to purchase their own credit insurance policies. Six months ago, the Chief Financial Officer of the holding company was introduced to the “Coface Global Solutions” program which three of its subsidiaries were already using. Very interested in the data available on the customer portfolio provided by its “CGS Dashboard”, the Chief Financial Officer conducted a global credit insurance review. This review found that by increasing its expenditure by 23%, the company could cover 100% of its sales instead of just 56% as was previously the case.
Through the implementation of the ‘CGS Dashboard’ in all of its subsidiaries, the company identified cumulative commitments thus far unknown to management on the subsidiaries of a number of company clients. They were in some cases operating under historical names with no direct connection to the name of the parent company. The decision was made to include an in depth analysis in the next annual report, distinguishing between the insured and residual risk components. The Chief Financial Officer was confident that their shareholders, who pay close attention to working capital risks in this business, would appreciate this key information.
