Local Currency Financing: eligible currencies

Back to News

UKEF can guarantee a buyer credit loan to an overseas borrower in local currency, financing the purchase of capital goods, services and/or intangibles from a UK exporter.

Details

Loans can be made in over 60 currencies . For the overseas borrower (and buyer) it reduces foreign currency risk and avoids a variable debt service cost.

A buyer credit in local currency follows the same format as a conventional buyer credit in a standard currency such as sterling, euros or US dollars except that it is funded from a bank in the buyer’s country.

Local Currency Financing is particularly suited to projects that do not usually generate foreign currency revenue, such as water/gas/electricity utilities, local transport and local municipalities.
