DUBAI – 15 MARCH 2015 – Euler Hermes, the worldwide leader in trade credit insurance, has been named “Best trade credit and political risk insurer 2014” by Global Trade Review in its “GTR Mena Leaders in Trade 2014” awards.
In a change of judging criteria for the 2014 award, the magazine’s corporate readers were asked to vote in favor of the leading banks, financial institutions, insurers and brokers in the Mena trade finance market.

Many congratulations to Euler Hermes for scooping the top prize in the underwriting category.”
