Country Heads are qualified practitioners of structured and export finance, with significant experience in their markets. They are based in countries around the world and are the first point of contact in-country for buyers based outside the UK who have an interest in UK procurement through government-backed financing.

Get local knowledge and global experience

Our Country Heads have local knowledge, experience and networks in their regions. In addition to helping you find the right finance structure for your project, they can also help you access the UK supply chain – they work with UK-based businesses to identify suitable opportunities.

Country Heads work closely with the Department for Business and Trade, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, HM Trade Commissioners and British ambassadors to engage with international governments and multinational companies looking to buy from the UK.

We cooperate with many other export credit agencies around the world, allowing us to collaboratively support international project financing needs.
