International Credit Brokers warn BRIC and MAVINS of trade risks from West

The 25-country membership of the International Credit Brokers Alliance (ICBA) advises exporting companies in BRIC and MAVINS countries to protect themselves from both trade and political risk from their Western counterparts. ICBA’s ability to combine local service with global coordination to provide trade, credit and political risk insurance solutions for multinational companies drives success for ICBA clients in developing economies. ICBA is meeting today in Johannesburg for its Annual General Meeting.

‚ÄúWhile¬†economies in America and Europe¬†continue to experience¬†headwinds,¬†growth is increasing in Brazil, Russia,¬†India and China (BRIC) and the surging¬†economies in¬†Mexico, Australia, Vietnam,¬†Indonesia, Nigeria and South¬†Africa (MAVINS) as well as Colombia and Turkey,‚Ä̬†says ICBA Operating Chairman Emmanuel Portier, who is also¬†Partner at ICBA¬†France. ‚ÄúThe world‚Äôs emerging multinationals need to adopt the best practices¬†of more established¬†multinationals regarding trade and political risk, and ICBA¬†brokers are here to help.‚ÄĚ
Each of the BRIC countries is predicted to become one of the six largest economic powers by surpassing traditional economic powers, including Germany, England, France and Italy, by 2050, and the MAVINS could easily equal 60 percent of America’s current economy by as early as 2020, over 200 percent by 2050, stated the Korea Times in an article published last month.

ICBA offers trade credit and political risk¬†insurance, and reliable, innovative solutions that meet 2011 business¬†requirements. ‚ÄúICBA brokers have a financial rather than a basic insurance background.¬†This is a critical differentiator¬†in the industry as trade credit insurance¬†coverage becomes increasingly driven by banking and financial rules, such¬†as¬†European IFRS and Basel II protocols,‚ÄĚ says Portier. ‚Äúand to generate an¬†insured‚Äôs cash capacity, based on¬†receivables secured, is also a primary concern¬†when building a credit insurance policy that works for a company.‚ÄĚ

The¬†ICBA serves over 7000 clients globally, including 320 multinational companies, and¬†this number continues to¬†increase. Business successes come by way of¬†collaboration and multi-lateral agreements among ICBA global¬†members. The ICBA broker network combines local service with¬†global coordination to provide trade, credit and¬†political risk insurance¬†solutions for multinational companies in every sector. ICBA entrepreneurs¬†intend to build¬†rapport and collaboration deeper into the ICBA alliance ‚Äď this is¬†one of the strongest features and the future of the¬†organization.

Also in Johannesburg this week, Russian and Japanese insurance brokerages will make presentations as they seek membership in the ICBA.
