What we offer
Requirements for your business
How an Export Loan works
With an Export Loan, EKF provides a loan directly to the project or project owner in the foreign country, allowing the project to place orders with your company.
We can offer Export Loans to both large projects such as cement plants, wind farms and infrastructure, and smaller projects such as equipment for agriculture and industry.
The mandatory credit period is a minimum of two years. On the other hand, we can offer repayment terms of up to 15 years, and 18 years, if the projects involve-renewable energy. Your company is not involved in the loan. EKF handles the dialogue with the borrower.
How to get an Export Loan
You need to obtain long-term financing
You have a potential order from a project in a foreign country with a long-term financing horizon. But the project's owner is unable to obtain financing to buy from you.
The project's bank does not want to be involved
The bank believes that the risk is too high, the term is too long, or the loan amount is too large, and does not want to be involved in financing.
We run a credit rating check on the project
You contact EKF, and we run a credit rating check on the project and project owner. This includes a CSR screening. If the loan amount is over DKK 25 million, a more in-depth CSR assessment will be required.
Dialogue with the Borrower and bank
Once we have agreed to the Export Loan, we discuss the terms and conditions directly with the Borrower and bank.
Offer and paperwork
We send a price indication together with loan terms and conditions to the Borrower´s bank and the foreign buyer.
And we’re done
We pay the loan amount to the project owner's bank, and the project can then buy goods or services from you. We handle the ongoing dialogue regarding the loan directly with the borrower.
