Export Credit Insurance


The U.S. Export-Import Bank provides export credit insurance to exporters to increase sales by limiting international risk, offering credit to international buyers, and enabling access to working capital funds. Ex-Im Bank insurance covers the risk of buyer nonpayment for commercial risks (e.g., bankruptcy) and certain political risks (e.g., war or the inconvertibility of currency). This product can replace cash-in-advance, letters of credit, and other documentary sales. By limiting risk, a business can sell to more international buyers and compete vigorously in international markets. Follow this link for contact information:
