Securing domestic and foreign investments

Export Development Guarantee
We help companies start or expand their export business through investments carried out in Poland. A Polish company, or a foreign investor, may need a loan to invest in new operational capacity to boost exports. We provide the guarantee to the bank for the capital expenditure loan, thereby providing the security the bank requires to grant the loan.
