Atradius, a global leader in credit insurance and credit management, received a licence for operating domestic and export credit insurance business in Turkey. The office of Atradius Turkey is located in Istanbul from where it will serve Turkish companies as well as local subsidiaries of international companies throughout the country. Mrs Selda Eke, 41, will assume the position of Country Manager. She formerly was working for Aon Risk Services, Istanbul, in the area of Risk Management and Business Development of Financial Products and Financial Institutions.

With the rapid expansion of the Turkish economy the number of companies that insure their trade debts is growing. Currently, the market penetration of credit insurance which is most established in Western Europe, is still low in Turkey.

Thomas Langen, Atradius Regional Director for Germany, Central and Eastern Europe says: “Turkey is one of the rising stars of the global economy. With its location between Europe, Asia and the Gulf States the country has been a trading hub for thousands of years. With an office in Istanbul, Atradius now wants to support Turkish and international companies entering new markets.”

Isidoro Unda, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Atradius N.V. says: “Starting to conduct business in Turkey soon is an important step in executing our global growth strategy. Atradius offers credit insurance services in 40 countries and thus plays an important role in insuring the growth of the world trade.”

Atradius services in Turkey are addressed to corporations and exporters, which aim at reducing the risk of payment delays or non-payment of trade debts.
