Export Credit Insurance

Arab Export Credit Insurance Scheme:

Dhaman runs the Arab Export Credit Insurance Scheme designed to support and encourage Arab exporters’ efforts to enhance their exports to Arab and non-Arab Markets and thus increasing inter-Arab trade and Arab exports worldwide.

 

This scheme offers the following advantages:

  1. Protection against non-payment risk.
  2. Increased ability to compete by enabling exporters to offer their buyers flexible credit terms, such as cheques, bills of exchange, or banking transfer, instead of insisting on advance payments or confirmed letters of credit, all without the fear of non-payment.
  3. Allowing the exporter to obtain financing from banks immediately after shipment and not having to wait for the due date by discounting the insured commercial papers and assigning the right to receive compensation to financing/discounting bank.
  4. Obtaining compensation at rate reaches up 100% of the loss.

Terms of Insurance

Our main goal is to help increase two-way trade flows between Arab member countries and the world by providing cover to:

  1. Exports from member countries worldwide: all goods and services of Arab origin are eligible. A certificate of origin delivered by an Arab Chamber of Commerce will attest to the Arab origin of the exported goods or services.
  2. Exports from a non-member country to a member country: developmentally sound goods and services such as equipment, commodities, raw materials, turnkey projects are eligible.

Insurance Contracts

In support of Arab exporters’ efforts to expand their exports, Dhaman provides them with expertise and offers necessary advice on the risks associated with buyers’ ability to service their obligations.
