What is an export credit agency?

Most countries world-wide have government mandated ECAs. Their purpose is to support and enable export trade for their country. Generally, ECAs provide government-backed finance solutions to businesses to help them grow exports.

Support export credit agencies can provide

Each export credit agency is given a mandate by their government outlining what support they are able to provide. This can include:

  • direct loans
  • guarantees and bonds
  • insurance products, including credit insurance and political risk insurance
  • project and buyer finance.
