The article focuses on issues related to credit insurance in Poland. Credit insurance started to develop in Poland in the early 1990s and though only 5% of all transactions are currently insured, compared with 26% in neighboring Germany, growth in the sector is quite substantial, running at about 30% to 40% each year. The Polish credit insurance market is currently estimated to be worth $54 million in annual premium. The country already plays host to most of the major international credit insurers, including Euler Hermes and Coface.
