Amsterdam / London, 21March 2017 -Members of the International Union of Credit and Investment Insurers (Berne Union) and the International Credit Insurance and Surety Association (ICISA) have signalled high levels of claims for 2016 in the latest joint industry member survey. Data trends suggest a peak, with claims for 2015 and 2016 higher than any time since the global financial crisis. This comes in part as a consequence of increased insolvencies in a number or regions worldwide, notably Africa, Latin America, Asia and MENA.
