Euler Hermes, the world’s leading provider of trade-related credit insurance, gives companies the confidence to trade and be paid. Their customers come to them for predictive insights to stop bad debts before they happen, and for credit insurance to cover unexpected losses. Euler Hermes, in turn, has relied on Beresford Research to conduct C-level research since 2014.
Their annual surveys vary but always look to explore the top concerns of the C-suite. Study insights help position Euler Hermes as a top-of-mind resource in an evolving risk environment. Collaborative survey design combined with the indisputable results from senior executive surveys and Beresford Research analysis has provided Euler Hermes with unique perspectives that their CFO clients and other potential C-suite customers desire.
