The CI Group

The CI Group was formed in 2000 in response to the credit insurance needs of the Factoring and Invoice Discounting (lenders) industry. The CI Group developed a specialist system (the Ebonded platform) to dramatically improve how credit insurance was used and managed. This led to a quantum leap in the ability to provide a value added solution for Lender’s clients resulting in a significant take up of the product.

The CI Group provides services and support for the Ebonded platform. The focus is on providing excellence alongside the system by training Lenders to identify the value for their clients. This has enabled increased lending to the SME market place and greater protection for these SME’s when selling their products or services on credit. The result is that many more SME’s that might have otherwise suffered were protected from bad debts.

We currently protect over £6 billion of trade both in the UK and internationally, from companies as small as £250k turnover to larger customers with £250m turnover.

As of 2015, The CI Group now provide this product directly to trading companies using the Debtor Insurance brand name.
