Guaranteed investigations

Cover partner default risk thanks to a “single line” trade credit insurance


  • Secure your turnover or your advance payment and protect yourself from the business partner default risk without any limitation on amounts
  • Compensate for refusals from trade credit insurers or when market capacities are insufficient
  • Cover an ad hoc requirement to secure outstanding amounts.

URIOS guaranteed investigations: an alternative to the “single risk” trade credit insurance

As a result of the economic crisis, we are witnessing a decline in the capacities of trade credit insurers. This decline is due to a preventive attitude on their part, but also to the lack of visibility they suffer from.

Today, URIOS, through an in-depth Solvency Study, can assess the sustainability and solvency of a company in a reliable and relevant manner, in real time.
Based on this study, URIOS, with its partner AIG, can issue a financial guarantee of the outstanding customer amount in order to secure the customer risk on a one-off basis or to complete a lack of coverage.
The Guaranteed Studies allow you to develop your activity without financial risk, in France and abroad. It is a “single line” trade credit insurance to cover the risk related to one or a few strategic customers.

  • If you have a trade credit insurer: the guaranteed study can intervene beyond the coverage threshold, for a period of 3 months or more.
  • If you do not have a trade credit insurer: the guaranteed study is a way to intervene in a targeted way on one or several of your most strategic customers.

Within the framework of this partnership with AIG, we carry out the collection in the event of unpaid invoices and compensate your company in the event of your customer’s default.

Discover the Reverse Guarantee: with the Reverse Guarantee, you have the possibility to regain the confidence of your partners by offering them a credit insurance on your company for their benefit without them having to bear the cost. This will allow you to negotiate more advantageous payment terms and to recover financial leeway. The amount of outstanding amount granted can be spread over several suppliers.
