Allianz Trade in Switzerland – the clear advantages we offer as an insurance partner

The benefits that small companies enjoy when taking out credit insurance from Allianz Trade in Switzerland speak for themselves! Thanks to flat-rate protection of 60% (Basic option), which is granted without any review, only a minimal and very manageable administration fee can be expected in case of a claim.
