Credit Enhancement Insurance assists lenders in mitigating or transferring credit risk.

The purpose of this specialist class of insurance is to enhance a borrower’s access to structured, project and asset based finance.

Credit enhancement insurance is designed to protect lenders against the risk of financial default. It can deliver a more efficient funding package by providing certain assurances if the borrower defaults against its loan.

With credit enhancement, the borrowers can benefit from higher collateral leverage, a longer loan term, interest only period, lower amortisation profiles and/or improved risk pricing offered by the lender.

Credit enhancement insurance policies are issued by HDI Global Specialty SE Australia, a wholly owned subsidiary of A+ S&P rated HDI Global Specialty SE.

We are a team of highly qualified banking professionals each with over 25 years’ experience in wholesale banking, commercial lending and loan syndication.
