Global ECA Financing team

Our Global ECA Financing team works with clients to provide holistic Export Credit Agency (ECA) financing solutions across the full credit spectrum, offering structuring and trade & working capital solutions.

Is it right for you?

Export Credit Agencies (ECAs) are essentially government institutions acting as a key enabler on behalf of national governments typically via the Treasury department to provide explicit financing support for domestic exporters.

Our Global ECA Financing team focuses on ECA financing for short-term trade & working capital needs and selective medium term capex requirements. Our short-term solutions include ECA-backed bond guarantee indemnities, letter of credit and working capital financing and invoice receivables.

The team approach is based around delivering high quality through professionals based in a central hub in London. We employ a coordinated approach when dealing with various ECAs to minimise operational risk and improve efficiency. This approach allows us to:

  • Explore the full extent of what is possible with relevant ECAs
  • Negotiate beneficial terms in order to achieve an optimal ECA financing solution
  • Assist clients with ECA backed trade solutions with full details on terms and conditions so key recommendations can be made on a financing proposal.
