As Australia's leading trade credit insurance and political risk insurance broker, ICBA Australia is uniquely placed to report on the 'ups and downs' of the country's inter-business trading climate. With frequent reports on the fluctuations of business trade credit factors, ICBA Australia's quarterly credit risk index is ideally placed to demonstrate the extremes of Australia's economy.
Note: This Credit Risk Index score is based on an aggregate of claims data, collection activity, credit limit decisions and overdue accounts.
