UK Export Finance is the UK’s export credit agency.
UKEF’s mission is to ensure that no viable UK export fails for lack of finance or insurance from the private sector, while operating at no net cost to the taxpayer.
We help UK companies of all sizes and in all sectors win, fulfil and get paid for export contracts. We provide insurance to exporters and guarantees to banks to share the risks of providing export finance. In addition, we can make loans to overseas buyers of goods and services from the UK.
As the world's first export credit agency, established in 1919, we've been innovating since day one.
Last year, we provided £2.5 billion of support for UK exports, helping 191 companies sell to 75 markets around the world.
77% of all companies we supported were small to medium-sized businesses.
We also lent £666 million directly to overseas buyers to help them buy from the UK - more than double the amount for 2016 to 2017.
