How it Works: EXIM Bank Export Credit Insurance

EXIM insurance offers significant benefits.

Nonpayment Risk Protection

EXIM export credit insurance provides payment coverage for both commercial and political risks. Local businesses can count on EXIM to protect their export sales to a single buyer or multiple buyers.

Extend Credit to Buyers

EXIM's insurance also empowers exporters to offer competitive “open account” terms instead of requiring their customers to pay cash-in-advance, use credit cards, or secure letters of credit.

Provides Access to Working Capital

Exporters can enhance the quality of their balance sheet by transforming foreign accounts receivable into receivables insure d by the U.S. government. With this insurance in place, lenders are more likely to advance an exporter a loan against these receivables.

EXIM Working Capital Loan Guarantee

EXIM works with a customer's private bank to help secure vital funds your local businesses need to fulfill their new sales orders. These funds can be used to purchase materials and equipment as well as cover labor and overhead costs. This credit line may even cover standby letters of credit used as performance or bid bonds. EXIM does not replace private banks, but backs their loan and increases your local businesses borrowing power.
