Our services and products

Our mission is to ensure no viable UK export fails for lack of finance or insurance, while operating at no net cost to the taxpayer.

Helping exporters win contracts

The attractive financing terms we can give to buyers of UK goods and services can help exporters make their offering more competitive.

Helping exporters fulfil contracts

We help companies access the working capital they need to fulfil a contract, giving them the ability to take on more contracts and increase turnover.

Helping exporters get paid

We can offer insurance against the risk of not being paid, or of not being able to recover the costs of fulfilling an export contract.

New business enquiries

Our helpline is open from 9am to 5pm.
