Norske statlige garantier betyr høy grad av sikkerhet for eksportører, kjøpere og banker
We reduce risk for exporters, buyers, or their banks, depending on the guarantee product used in connection with an export transaction. Lower risk gives the parties incentive to sign a contract and increases exporter competitiveness.
The application process includes a four-step explanation of our requirements and how the guarantee application is processed and followed up.
GIEK can provide a guarantee to a bank that finances a company’s investment in Norway. The investment must directly or indirectly lead to export.
Norwegian export contracts are quicker and easier to negotiate when the buyer receives help to debt-finance the purchase. GIEK’s buyer credit guarantee can be used with a loan from Norwegian and foreign banks or Export Credit Norway.
Through the ship guarantee scheme for financing ships from yards in Norway to be used in Norway, GIEK mitigates risk for banks and other financial institutions. The ship guarantee secures repayment of the loan from the buyer.
In some cases a Norwegian company may be asked to provide a bank guarantee to its foreign customers. The bank guarantee may cover actual delivery, advance payment or other risks the buyer takes. This is called a bond guarantee. The bank issuing bond guarantees on behalf of an exporter may apply risk sharing with GIEK. The bank can help the exporter by applying to GIEK for risk mitigation. In cases where the exporter has a continuing need for such guarantees, the bank can seek a framework agreement with GIEK.
