Investments abroad

The investment guarantee covers the risk of loss due to political events associated with investment or investment loans abroad.

The guarantee can be used by investors or financiers of investment loans. It offers protection against events that occur as from the date of the full or partial completion of the investment or the disbursement of the loan.

With an EKN guarantee, you know that you will be compensated if, due to government intervention in the country of investment, you cannot dispose of the investment or if the investment loan you have extended is not repaid.

Investments that can be guaranteed
