A Look Back at the History of Allianz Trade in Canada

In March of 1923, Allianz Trade, then known as American Credit Indemnity of New York, was granted the right to conduct business in the Dominion of Canada.  Our first office at 232 St. James Street in Montreal was at the heart of Canada’s business community. Over the years, our commitment to providing excellent service propelled us to expand our offerings to meet unique customer needs. In addition to helping with unpaid receivables during these times, we enhanced our trade credit offerings to also cover political risk, and in more recent years, we began offering surety bonds. This is just a quick look at Allianz Trade in Canada’s history, find out more in the video above.

Looking ahead, we are confident that the values that formed our strong foundation will bring continued success for the century to come.
