UK Export Finance (UKEF)

UK Export Finance (UKEF) is the UK’s export credit agency.

We help exporters by sharing the financial risks of selling overseas, with support such as insurance and credit guarantees for their banks. We can also guarantee loans to overseas buyers of UK exports, or lend directly to buyers ourselves.

UKEF can support exports of goods, services and of intangibles (including intellectual property) to more than 200 countries worldwide.

We are a UK government department, and all our guarantees carry the full faith and credit of HM Treasury. UK Export Finance is the operating name of the Export Credits Guarantee Department (ECGD).
