Investment Guarantee

Protect your foreign investment from loss

EKF can help you if you want to set up production in countries with less stable political, economic or social environments than in Denmark. For example, a civil war may break out, in which your subsidiary is at risk of damage, or the authorities could decide to take over your company. It could also become impossible to transfer the company's money out of the country. With an Investment Guarantee, EKF assumes your risk of loss as aresult of political conditions.

Competitive edge.
You receive your money immediately, even though your customer buys on credit.
Compensation if your customer fails to pay.

Requirements for your business

The customer must be creditworthy.
You must sell facilities, equipment and machinery or other goods that can be financed via a long credit period of minimum 181 days.
Your company must help to generate economic growth in Denmark.

How an Investment Guarantee works

You propose to invest or have invested in a subsidiary abroad and wish to insure yourself against losses due to political instability in the country. EKF provides a guarantee for your investment, thereby assuming most of the risk.

The country is politically unstable

Conditions in the country are unstable, and the political, economic or social situation may be uncertain. Losses could be incurred as a result of nationalisation or unrest, for example, or it may become impossible to transfer money out of the country.

We run a credit rating check on your investment

You contact EKF and ask us to assume the risk in the form of an Investment Guarantee. However, we must first run a credit rating check on your investment to establish the extent of the risk. This includes a CSR screening. If the guarantee amount is over DKK 25 million, a more in-depth CSR assessment will be required.

If we agree to assume the risk, we will send an offer detailing the cover, price and conditions.

And we're done

We then issue the Investment Guarantee, which assumes the political risk for losses in your foreign subsidiary. This gives you the peace of mind to focus on expanding your company.
