Putting the right finance and insurance in place can give you the exporting edge, helping you to win contracts, fulfil orders and get paid.

We help UK-based exporters of all sizes, in all sectors, exports to over 200 countries. We work hard to understand each customer and tailor our support to provide the most appropriate solution.
But when the world needs your expertise, you may need ours.UK Export Finance is the operating name of the Export Credits Guarantee Department, the United Kingdom’s export credit agency. ECGD was founded in 1919 and sits within the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. Its purpose is to complement the private market by providing assistance to UK exporters, principally in the form of insurance and guarantees to banks.
UK Export Finance (UKEF) helps companies:
- win export contracts by providing attractive financing terms
- fulfil orders by supporting their working capital
- make sure they get paid with export insurance
In government we are part of the Department for International Trade, operationally and strategically aligned with our trade promotion colleagues at home and abroad. We also work closely with the Scottish Council for Development & Industry, Business Wales and Invest Northern Ireland to ensure that exporters from across the UK receive the full range of government support available.
Helping to make exports happen
Over the past five years, UKEF has provided over £15 billion worth of finance and insurance to help exporters across the UK sell to over 200 countries. Here are just a few examples of how they have benefited from our support.
Our mission is to ensure that no viable UK export fails for lack of finance or insurance. Read this Whitepaper and have the best Export Business and connectivity to the international markets.
