The Seguradora Brasileira Crédito à Exportação (SBCE), founded in 1997, offers a modern instrument capable of providing greater competitiveness to Brazilian exports. That is the export credit insurance (ECI), purchased by Brazilian exporters against the risk of default arising from foreign buyers.
SBCE has the following shareholders: Banco do Brasil, BNDES and Coface (Compagnie Française d'Assurance pour le Commerce Extérieur), who together provide Brazilian exporters with the necessary soundness and technology.
Based on a widely established concept and high market reliability, the export credit insurance policies issued by SBCE are also used as guarantees for export financing.
SBCE is renowned for being a key contributor in promoting and enhancing Brazilian exports. By providing a guarantee of receipt of expected payments, the company belongs to a wider formation of entities that allow the development and progress of our external market sales, such as the government and/or banks that finance the projects and the exporters themselves that are responsible for the actual sale of the products or services.
SBCE, acting for itself or on behalf of the Federal Government, provides coverage for external Brazilian sales against Commercial, Political and Extraordinary Risks.
Operationally, exports are divided into two groups, short term and medium- and long-term, in accordance with the payment term given to the importer:
