Main Types of Loans
We finance your capital goods exports in emerging/developing countries with coverage provided by a government ECA or a loan insurance.
Under this type of credit, the exporter (seller) refinances/purchases claims from individual exports of capital goods and services based on coverage provided by an export credit agency (ECA).
This is also called a guarantee ceiling or blanket credit line. This type of credit describes framework agreements with emerging market banks and companies to finance many small and medium-sized businesses at largely standardized conditions, based on coverage provided by an export credit agency (ECA).
This is also called a soft loan. Under this type of export loan, which is based on an international agreement, a country (e.g. Switzerland) grants part of a loan as a gift (= tied development aid).
This is also called an export loan and refers to credit granted to the importer (buyer) to finance individual imports of capital goods and services based on coverage provided by an export credit agency (ECA).
Export Financing Loan
This is also called a commercial loan and is credit extended to the importer (buyer) to finance advance and intermediate payments or deliveries and services that are not covered by the export credit agency (ECA), in lieu of, or in addition to, export loans covered by the ECA.
