Cover Ratings
On Cover
NZECO is open for cover across the range of private and public buyers, subject to NZECO’s standard underwriting criteria for each transaction.
Limited Cover
NZECO is open for cover although this may be for a limited profile of buyers and/or only for transactions with shorter credit terms. NZECO may apply more stringent underwriting criteria and conditions of support. For example, any NZECO approval may require a higher level of risk sharing from the Insured and/or an extended claims waiting period.
Off Cover
With limited exceptions, we are off cover on all buyers in these countries.
