With the help of SEK’s financing, international buyers can obtain loans to purchase Swedish goods and services, in both good and bad economic times.

SEK also lend directly to Swedish exporters so they can continue to grow their businesses. SEK is tasked by the Swedish government to offer Swedish exporters long-term financial solutions and is focused solely on lending to the Swedish export sector.

SEK is an independent institution that is owned by the Swedish government and acts as a complement to banks.

In 2016 SEK lent a total of Skr 55 billion.
