Annual Report 2017

EKN guarantees growing numbers of smaller transactions for companies. The guarantee volume remains around SEK 40 billion, which is a significant amount in particular in an economic expansion.

The guarantee volume for small and medium-sized enterprises remains at the same level as previous years. This is primarily attributable to these companies’ needs for financing, EKN’s regional presence and more than a thousand visits annually to companies and banks.
