About the event

UK Export Finance (UKEF) and the British Exporters Association (BExA) invite you to join our webinar on the General Export Facility. Launched in December 2020, this facility enables UKEF to provide a partial guarantee to lenders of up to 80% of the credit risk on facilities typically worth up to £25 million, with UKEF’s support no longer tied to individual export contracts. Please click here to view a short video on GEF.

    UK Export Finance is the UK's export credit agency. In the last five years we've provided £18.5 billion of support for UK exports. We work in partnership with banks and brokers to provide working capital loans, credit insurance and bank guarantees so UK companies can trade with overseas markets.

    UKEF helps companies:

    • Win contracts by providing attractive financing terms 
    • Fulfil orders by supporting working capital loans
    • Get paid by insuring against buyer default
