UK Export Finance

About UKEF

UK Export Finance is the UK’s export credit agency. UKEF’s mission is to ensure that no viable UK export fails for lack of finance or insurance from the private sector, while operating at no net cost to the taxpayer.

UKEF helps UK-based exporters of all sizes export to over 200 countries. Their support enables businesses to access finance and insurance when there is a lack of private sector risk appetite or capacity, and they work with over 100 private credit insurers and lenders.

UKEF’s export finance managers, based across the UK, provide free and impartial guidance to businesses on their export finance needs.
