More than 30 years leading the Credit and Guarantee Insurance market in Chile.
The first Insurance Company of its kind in Chile.
Its history is intertwined with the history of credit insurance in the country, which began in 1988 when private companies exclusively dedicated to the subscription of credit insurance, both domestic and export, were allowed. These companies were also authorized to provide surety bonds and fidelity insurance. After a promising feasibility study, the shareholders of Continental decided to create a company specialized exclusively in credit insurance and guarantees. On February 7, 1990, the company, named Compañía de Seguros de Crédito Continental, became the first authorized credit insurance company according to Chilean law, approved by the Securities and Insurance Superintendent. Since its establishment, Continental has become the leading company in the Chilean market, providing effective solutions for the risks involved in domestic and international sales. Additionally, the company informs about the business climate and conditions in each country where Chilean companies operate. On February 22, 1990, the Continental Credit Insurance Policy was registered (POL 1 90 002) by the Securities and Insurance Superintendent, making it the first policy of its kind in Chile. Since 1990, Continental Credit Insurance Company has also developed the guarantee insurance, expanding the market that was primarily dominated by bank guarantees. The guarantee policies offered by Continental have become widely accepted by major public and private entities as an effective mechanism to secure obligations arising from contracts or legal provisions. In 1997, the Group Atradius became a shareholder, becoming an important ally and an essential part of the company's development.
The ownership of the Company involves the Chilean company Agustinas Servicios Financieros S.A., which is a founding shareholder of Continental, and the Atradius Group through Atradius Participations Holding B.V.
