We obtain payment for our services in the form of premiums. In other words, our business is premium-financed, the idea being that periods of surplus will finance periods of deficit.
Our customers are export companies and banks. Our services involve offering state guarantees for the payment and financing of export transactions.
Most countries have their own equivalent of EKN.
EKN is an agency which comes under the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. Our minister is the Minister for Trade, Ann Linde.
As a public authority EKN is governed by the Swedish principle of public access, meaning that when public information is requested, it shall be issued promptly by EKN. At the same time, EKN must act in accordance with the Public Access and Secrecy Act and keep information confidential that, if publicised, is deemed damaging to business and operational relationships.
