Export finance: innovative financing solutions and established relationship with the export credit agencies all over the world
Our offer and our network
The Export Finance line provides cross-border financing as well as advisory and arranging solutions for our Corporate and Financial Institutions clients around the world.
These services are related to export contracts signed between one or more suppliers and an importer for the provision of capital goods and/or services between the parties to the commercial contract. They generally involve a medium/long term financing.
- ECA-covered Buyer and Supplier credits,
- Lending with multinational institutions.
This type of financing is normally covered (fully or in part) by a guarantee or an insurance policy issued by one or several, as the case may be, national Export Credit Agency (“ECA”).
The terms of the credit must comply with the OECD’s intricate terms and whose rules apply to all OECD members.
Export Finance also handles other types of financing such as those sponsored or supported by multilaterals (EIB, EBRD, IFC…) and commercial loans tied to the export contract. Untied loan programs or Investment guarantees by ECAs are similarly part of the offer.
Our teams work in a tight network across 18 countries. They have a long and well established relationship with over 25 ECAs in the exporting countries and a well developed relation with clients on the exporting and importing end. They benefit from extensive experience in providing tailor-made financing and advisory solutions for a whole range of projects across all sectors, including power, oil and gas, rail, infrastructure, Telecom, satellites and other eligible sectors.
