“This agreement will further strengthen the cooperation between Banco BPI and Allianz Trade for the distribution of credit insurance for companies. Our aim is to continue helping companies to trade with confidence, both in Portugal and in the global markets”, said Pedro Barreto, a Member of the Board and Executive Committee of Banco BPI.
