Berne Union releases latest Business Confidence Survey

(Trade Finance Global, London, 26 August 2022) The Berne Union released its latest Business Confidence Survey this week amid mounting geopolitical uncertainty. This latest rendition of the quarterly report shows that demand for export credit insurance is growing. This phenomenon appears to stem from heightened geopolitical risk around the world and the overall bleak economic outlook. Paul Heaney, Acting Secretary General at Berne Union, said, “Right now, geopolitical risk is pushing up demand, while the fragile economic environment ultimately means more expensive finance and less underlying trade and investment activity.”
