About Swiss Export Risk Insurance

Swiss Export Risk Insurance SERV insures political and commercial risks involved in exporting goods and services. SERV insurance and guarantees protect Swiss exporters from non-payment and facilitate export financing. Its solutions also help companies obtain low-interest loans or higher credit limits in order to conserve cash when exporting goods and services. With its ECA Pathfinding project SERV also enables attractive financing solutions in buyer markets mostly for large-scale infrastructure projects.

As an institution under public law, SERV insures exports that private insurers do not cover. Its products are available to every company domiciled in Switzerland and there are no minimum order volumes required.
