Hello, we’re Hokodo

We believe the design and distribution of financial products has been broken for a long time. And we’re on a journey to fix it!

Hokodo was founded to make B2B trade easier and safer."

Hokodo works with wholesalers, online B2B marketplaces and other merchants to make selling to business buyers easier. Unlike consumers, businesses generally expect to pay on credit terms. To manage this risk, sellers traditionally resort to paper-based trading account applications and manual credit decisions.

Hokodo streamlines this whole process, allowing sellers to make credit decisions in real time when the customer reaches the check-out. We protect the seller by insuring the credit risk with Lloyd’s of London, and we arrange the financing so our sellers can get paid upfront if they choose.

Our digital platform combines instant credit assessments and fully automated limits management, all served up via APIs in less than 1 second.

Our ambition is simple: to shape the insurance of tomorrow

We are a team of financial experts, technologists and data scientists, coming together to make insurance and financing solutions more accessible to end-customers.
