Whether you want to grow your international portfolio or assist your corporate clients in growing their international business, EKN has products to mitigate the risk.
Structured Export Financing, Project Financing
Attractive financing is crucial for large infrastructure projects that take years to negotiate and complete and involve contractors and suppliers from many different countries. If Sweden-based companies are among the suppliers, the arranging bank may apply for a Buyer Credit Guarantee from EKN. This minimises the bank’s exposure to project credit risk and capital loss while securing better financing terms for the borrower, such as lower funding costs and longer tenors. Such benefits can render a project viable and sometimes make the difference between make or break.

Exporters that hold a Supplier Credit Guarantee from EKN are insured against the risk of non-payment in export transactions, which allows the bank to discount their invoices with the guarantee as collateral. This means the bank can do more business with the client without affecting capital requirements or customer borrowing limits.

EKN’s new Green Guarantee covers credits to Swedish exporting companies that contribute to the climate transition – working capital as well as financing of a specific investment. Since the guarantee covers the bank’s risk up to 80 percent instead of previously 50 percent, the bank’s lending capacity is increased. The assessment criteria are based on the EU taxonomy.
In addition, EKN is developing the entire portfolio of export guarantee products with the aim of offering more favourable terms for green exports.
