A company aiming at international markets may apply for Finnvera’s loans and guarantees for expanding its operations abroad.
The Internationalisation Loan provided by Finnvera is intended for financing a Finnish SME’s business abroad and the Internationalisation Guarantee is intended as collateral for such financing. The intended use may be, for instance, investments, development or financing for growth for a Finnish SME’s subsidiary, associated company or branch office that has been, or is planned to be, established abroad.
Finnvera also provides companies with solutions to cover payment risks in export trade and to ease financing problems. In 2017, Finnvera continued to expand its export trade product selection: in April 2017, it launched the Receivables Purchase Guarantee, suitable for short-term export trade transactions of under two million euros, to complement the Bill of Exchange Guarantee and the Export Receivables Loan that were introduced to the market a year earlier.
Finnvera aims to ensure the competitiveness of Finnish enterprises in the export market so that they have equal opportunities to compete on the international market. Among Finnvera’s diverse selection of export credit guarantees, exporters and financiers find solutions for covering payment risks in export trade and for easing financing problems.
Working together with Finnvera, Finnish Export Credit Ltd, a subsidiary of Finnvera, provides exporters and financial institutions with competitive export financing services, such as financing for export credits and interest equalisation. Export financing services facilitate export transactions benefiting Finns and provide protection against risks arising from exports.
