UK Export Finance

We are the UK’s export credit agency and a government department, working alongside the Department for Business and Trade as an integral part of its strategy and operations. We work with over 100 private credit insurers and lenders to help UK companies access export finance (the particular class of loans, insurance policies or bank guarantees that enable international trade to take place as easily and securely as possible). We exist to complement not compete with the private sector.

We help UK companies to:

  1. win export contracts by providing attractive financing terms to their buyers
  2. fulfil contracts by supporting working capital loans
  3. get paid by insuring against buyer default
