Export-Import Bank Solutions
What is EXIM?
The Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM) is the official export credit agency of the United States. EXIM was congressionally authorized in 1934 with the mission of supporting American jobs by facilitating the export of U.S. goods and services. EXIM recently received its longest period of reauthorization, a seven-year period that ends December 31, 2026.
When private sector lenders and insurance companies are unable or unwilling to provide support to U.S. exporters, EXIM fills in the gap for American businesses. In doing so, this agency levels the playing field, helping U.S. exporters compete globally creating more U.S. jobs.
EXIM solutions include Export Credit Insurance for businesses, Working Capital Guarantees for lenders/bankers and Project & Structured Finance (in high risk situations). Due to congressional requirements, EXIM supports exporters with a minimum of 50% U.S. content and shipments leaving the United States.
Our EXIM Guide to Export Credit Insurance is a free resource that explains what exporters should know to insure foreign receivables and take advantage of international sales.
