Who We Are


Why Use A Broker?

Navigating the world of credit insurance and the insurance claims process can be complicated and challenging. Using a broker like Securitas Global Risk Solutions gives the balance of power back to the client in the form of our knowledge of the industry, our understanding of your company, and our ability to provide you the carrier that offers the best coverage at the lowest rate.

There is no additional cost to you for using a trade credit insurance broker. This means that on a given insurance policy, your rate will be the same whether you decide to undertake the process alone by going directly to an insurance carrier or work with a trade credit insurance broker.

In fact, you are likely going to pay less on your premium because you have your choice of multiple carriers, rather than being locked into one.

As an insurance broker rather than an insurance agent, Securitas Global Risk Solutions is able to apply to multiple carriers to find the best contract, with the most coverage, for the least cost.

A carrier’s agent can only advise you as to that carrier’s specific contract. We have a team of experts who are available to you 24/7 to answer any questions or concerns. Additionally, our service comes at no charge to you.

Why Use Securitas?

Client Focused

Our process begins with you. We use a personalized approach to insurance brokerage. We start by meeting with you because we want to get to know you and thoroughly understand your business and buyers. From there we can collaborate on creating a policy that meets your needs for today and the future.

Expert Negotiating

With decades of experience, we have become experts in trade credit insurance. Our established relationships with trusted insurance carriers enables us to work collaboratively towards policy agreements.


After working together to elect the best policy at the most competitive price, we continue to work with you as your needs evolve. We believe in adding value to your company throughout our working relationship. We are here to serve you.
