About Coface

Our organisation

SUPPORTING YOUR GROWTH AROUND THE WORLD

Coface began to diversify internationally in 1992. Currently, the Group has global capabilities to support its clients’ growth in their home markets and with their exports by offering them credit insurance services tailored to their needs.
 
The Group’s organisation is focused entirely on this goal. Its 4,400 employees working in 67 countries offer adapted risk prevention, monitoring and protection services to companies of all sizes and nationalities and in all sectors. To that end, the Group’s underwriters, business information and receivables collection specialists are available to serve clients and enable them to carry out their business activities more safely. Clients thus benefit from the expertise and organisation of an international Group that can offer them local service fine-tuned to their needs.
