Export Credit Insurance protects against international customer non-payment

By protecting exporters’ accounts receivable, the Export-Import Bank (EXIM) Express Insurance is a product that provides significant benefits with little hassle. Express Insurance empowers exporters to overcome obstacles in the way of increasing international market share.

Use Express Insurance to:

  • Insure against nonpayment by international customers.
  • Cover both commercial (e.g., bankruptcy) and political (e.g., war or the inconvertibility of currency) risks.
  • Arrange financing through a lender by using insured receivables as additional collateral.

Benefits of Express Insurance:

  • Risk reduction: safeguard against catastrophic losses from buyer nonpayment.
  • Increased competitiveness: unlock the ability to offer buyers the credit necessary to expand into new markets and boost sales with existing customers.
  • Improved liquidity: accelerate cash flow by borrowing against foreign receivables.
