OeKB delivers central infrastructural and financial services to the Austrian market. Internationally we are a highly rated issuer of bonds. Our services benefit exporters, investors in projects abroad, financial service providers, capital market participants and the Austrian government.
Services for Exports and Foreign Investment
Insurance and financing for exporters and outward foreign investors
Export guarantees via Austria's export credit agency (ECA)
The Austrian government guarantees minimise the political and commercial risks of export transactions and are delivered by OeKB. Companies investing in other countries thus gain protection against losses caused by political or other factors.
Funding for international activities on favourable terms
Guarantees and avals (third-party guarantees of payment on bills of exchange) are the key to OeKB's Export Financing Scheme. With these, OeKB backs the lending of its customers' own banks, which facilitate exports and investment abroad through attractively priced credit.
OeKB a well-rated issuer in international bond market
Due to Aa1/AA+ ratings and decades of market presence, OeKB's bond issues are very much in demand with investors. The capital raised is used to fund the OeKB export credits extended by customers' own banks.
