Advantages of export financingAdvantages of export financing

Export financing is a key competitive factor for exporters and may increase their opportunities of signing a contract. There are several advantages for both importers and exporters in having the Bank handle and finance the transaction.

Advantages for exporter

  • Gains competitive edge by offering financing to prospective buyers
  • Receives cash payment upon shipment or commissioning
  • Does not tie up assets
  • Avoids credit, currency and interest-rate risks in the settlement period
  • Does not need to use administrative resources to collect the debt

Advantages for importer

  • Can use long-term financing to match expected revenues with expenditures, making cash flow more efficient
  • Obtain financing that is less expensive than local financing which may be subject to restrictions
  • Obtain additional savings on financing as exporters can use private insurance programmes which can make financing available at competitive rates
  • Can obtain fixed-rate financing and be certain of the size of future payments
