Government urged not to restrict lending to exporters
The British Exporters Association (BExA) has called on the UK government to commit to the future of the Direct Lending facility delivered by UK Export Finance (UKEF) – the UK’s export credit agency and a department of the UK government – to help support the growth of British exports to new markets.
Aon is delighted to have been part of the annual BExA lunch on Wednesday 10 October 2018 which launched BExA’s 9th annual benchmarking report ‘UK Finance – Strategy and reality’.
“realising that countries that have a successful export credit agency normally punch above their weight in ranking terms for global exports.”
The benchmarking report helps measure the UKEF’s effectiveness against its global peers as a prime driver of British exports. “We started this benchmarking report nine years ago,” said Susan Ross, Vice- President for BExA and an Account Director within Aon’s Credit Solutions, “realising that countries that have a successful export credit agency normally punch above their weight in ranking terms for global exports.”
