Atradius Update – Spring 2021
Update from Stuart Ramsden - Atradius Regional Director UK & Ireland:
During Q1, Covid 19 has continued to dominate the agenda for all of us, and whilst there is at last some light ahead, as the vaccination rollout progresses and lockdown restrictions ease, the impacts of the virus continue to take their toll economically.
Atradius has continued to work hard to support our customers and in particular to enable trade wherever possible. Working in partnership with our brokers continues to be crucial in delivering optimal solutions for our mutual clients. As you know, this next quarter will see the expiry of the Government Scheme. However, we expect a smooth transition into the post scheme environment enabled by proactive management, including timely and transparent communication.
Whilst the Treasury’s backing has provided much needed stability to the trading environment, the risk environment remains severely challenged. We remain committed to supporting our customers to enable commercial activities to continue, working with our brokers and customers to manage the impacts that the pandemic is continuing to have on national and international trade. It is vital that we actively plan ahead to ensure a smooth transition into the second half of the year and we are confident that we will continue to deliver optimal solutions despite the testing economic and commercial environment.
Our goal as always is to enable trade and with ambitious growth targets for 2021, we are focused more than ever on supporting business growth.
