Lending

Eksportfinans manages a solid portfolio of both government supported and commercial export credits. The majority of Eksportfinans' borrowers are based within the OECD area. Norwegian borrowers represent a major part of the lending volume.

Around 75 percent of all loans provided by Eksportfinans are secured by guarantees from either GIEK (The Norwegian Guarantee Institute for Export Credits) and / or highly rated banks.

Eksportfinans provided officially supported loans to the Norwegian export sector from 1978 to 2011 by virtue of a special arrangement with the Norwegian Government. A new state-owned entity, Export Credit Norway was set up for this purpose on July 1, 2012. Consequently, Eksportfinans is not granting new loans. The company offers a range of services to borrowers as part of the loan administration process.

Please refer to the latest annual and quarterly report for further information about the size and composition of the loan portfolio.
