Make sure you get paid
Our flexible insurance solutions protect against risks such as your customer’s inability to pay, political instability and sudden contract cancellation.
EDC can help you get financing for a range of international business needs, as well as:
> Your export- and investment-related capital – We can provide guarantees to your bank on loans for equipment, work in progress or working capital needs.
> Investments in other markets – If you want to invest in another market, perhaps by setting up a local office, EDC can provide financing support.
