Export-Import Bank: Your Global Finance Partner

As U.S. businesses seek to expand their global footprint in emerging markets, the demand for a dependable global financial partner is imperative.  The Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank of the United States is the official credit agency of the United States and offers solutions to U.S. companies to assist with demystifying international financing options.  Its mission is to assist in financing the export of U.S. goods and services to international markets. 

MBDA has partnered with the Ex-Im Bank to educate and make available access to export financing resources for minority-owned firms.  To kick-start this partnership, on February 21, 2013, Ex-Im Bank conducted a webinar on its international financing programs and services. Tamara Maxwell, Ex-Im’s Export Finance Manager shared information on:

  • How to apply for an Ex-Im Bank Loan
  • How to access the working capital finance program (pre-export financing)
  • Supply chain finance guarantee program
  • Global credit express
  • Export credit insurance
  • Loan guarantee
  • Finance lease guarantee
  • Direct loans (buyer financing)
  • Where to find an Ex-Im Bank office near you

Ex-Im Bank does not compete with private lenders but provides export financing products that fill gaps in trade financing.  It assumes credit and country risks that the private sector is unable or unwilling to accept.  It also helps to level the playing field for U.S. exporters by matching the financing that other governments provide to their exporters.

Because no transaction is too large or too small for Ex-Im Bank,  this financing alternative helps to turn export opportunities into real sales that help to create and sustain U.S. jobs and contribute to a stronger national economy.  With more than 78 years of experience and having supported more than $456 billion of U.S. exports, consider Ex-Im Bank when you are ready to step onto the global stage.
