We're a one-stop trade credit shop.

About us

NCI was established in 1985 as a specialist trade credit insurance broker. Our business has grown steadily to become the leading trade credit insurance broker throughout Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

Over the years, we realised that while our product was ultimately trade credit insurance, our business was actually about protecting our client’s profitability. While credit insurance is the ultimate safeguard against bad debts, better business practices in trade credit management can also help to improve profitability on a day to day basis. We have therefore developed a complete range of trade credit services for our clients.
