In 2014, the value of internationally traded goods and services reached 23.5USD Trillion – most of these represent significant investments for their buyers and often need to be financed with long-term credits. Additionally, buyers established in developing and less-developed countries (which represent 40% of the total imports) are frequently faced with significantly more difficulties to finance these transactions than in developed countries.

This is where export credits with official export credit agencies (ECAs) play a key role. Export credits contribute to the financing of new projects valued at 150USD Billion per year and a deeper understanding of these products is essential for anyone involved in international sales and/or their financing.
