UK Export Finance

UK Export Finance NEW

 UK Export Finance exists to ensure no viable UK export fails for lack of finance or insurance, while operating at no net cost to the taxpayer.


UKEF are the UK’s export credit agency and a government department, working alongside the Department for International Trade as an integral part of its strategy and operations. They work with 70 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.

UKEF helps companies to:

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

They can support exports for any size of company and across all sectors, from capital goods to services and intangibles such as intellectual property.

Their export finance managers provide free and impartial consultations. They help UK companies to check they are getting the appropriate support and, if not, explore how to bridge any gaps.

Arrange a consultation with your local export finance manager.
