The Exporters’ Edge

First Steps to ExportUKEF is the UK’s export credit agency, working alongside the Department for International Trade to support British exporters.

Their mission is to make sure that no UK export fails for lack of finance or insurance.

Last year they worked alongside over 70 private lenders and credit insurers, providing £2.5bn of government-backed support across 75 countries – at absolutely no cost to the taxpayer.

In addition to the private sector, they also work closely with the Department of International Trade, the Treasury and British embassies and consulates around the world.

Their support could help you:

Win Contracts – by providing attractive financing terms.

Fulfil Orders – by supporting working capital loans.

And Get Paid – by insuring against buyer default.

To check if you could be eligible for government-backed finance or insurance, visit for a free consultation.
