What Is Equity Express Select?

EQS is an insurance policy specifically created for underserved businesses, which includes minority, women, veteran, rural, and disability-owned companies.

The policy covers the accounts receivable created by selling to an international buyer on open account credit terms. With a policy in place, your company can offer open account credit terms (60 days, 120 days, etc.) to win new customers and increase sales to existing buyers, while reducing the risk of nonpayment.
