Discretionary Credit Limit
Is it important to you to choose your customer?
FCIA’s Discretionary Credit Limit (DCL) is a core feature of our Multibuyer Credit Insurance Policies that allows the insureds to qualify the majority of their buyers for coverage on their own and to maintain control of important customer relationships. With a DCL, you don’t have to outsource these business decisions to your credit insurance company. FCIA is a pioneer in offering the DCL feature on credit insurance policies in the U.S.
The DCL is designed for companies that have at least one or more credit or financial professionals on staff managing their accounts receivable.
- Easy and flexible options to qualify buyers
- Qualifying options likely fit into your existing receivables management
- No buyer limit underwriting fees
- No restrictive caps on DCL losses
- Long and successful track record of adjusting claims that develop under the DCL
Let us partner with you in managing your customer relationships and accounts receivable portfolio.
