Specialized Finance - Export Finance

We offer you the best Medium and Long Term Export financing solutions.

We support your international ambitions by offering tailor-made solutions in export financing.

KBC's Export Finance team supports exporters of capital goods and related services, by offering Medium and Long Term (MLT) export credits under which the exporter is directly paid by KBC BANK NV. The credit itself is granted to the borrower (f.i. a foreign buyer, a foreign bank or foreign authorities), and covered by export credit agencies (ECAs) or private insurers.

The Export Finance team supports your export activities, offering ECA-covered export financing solutions with the goal of reaching more challenging markets mainly situated outside the OECD.

Who we serve

KBC's Export Finance team in Brussels serves export companies ranging from SME's to large companies with a presence mainly in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany or the UK.

What we do

MLT financing solutions mainly consist of buyer's credits, bank-to-bank credits and concessional credits.

MLT credits can be offered either (i) on a bilateral basis or (ii) via club deals or syndicated loans together with other lenders.

Although the core focus is on credits covered by public ECAs, a cover through private risk insurance (PRI) can represent an alternative. Underlying assets financed with MLT credits are capital goods and/or related services, and must comply with the KBC Credit Policy.

Added value

The KBC Export Finance team can make a key difference by offering MLT financing solutions to exporters looking to expand their business beyond their domestic markets, and thus mitigating the buyer risk and country risk.
