A global network of export finance support

We know that every opportunity is different, and finding the right financial structure can be the key to success.

Our International Export Finance Executives are qualified practitioners of structured and export finance, with significant experience in their markets. They are the first point of contact in-country for overseas buyers, UK exporters contractors and all other counterparties with an interest in UK procurement through government-backed financing.

Local knowledge and experience to boost your export success

Our International Export Finance Executives maintain and develop local knowledge, experience and networks through regular contacts with local senior sponsors, banks, public sector organisations, government bodies and UK businesses to identify export opportunities. They can then find the most suitable finance solutions tailored to each transaction.

They work closely with the Department for Business and Trade, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, HM trade commissioners and British ambassadors to engage with overseas governments and multinational companies looking to buy from the UK.

Supporting international projects through global collaboration

UKEF cooperates with many other export credit agencies (ECAs), allowing us to collaboratively support international project financing needs.
