The support you need to achieve your international sales goals

At Fifth Third Bank, we can help clients like you fund your export-related production and sales by offering pre and post-export financing, including purchase of insured receivables.

Take advantage of our government-sponsored programs

We also provide access to government programs that support loans against export-related inventory and work-in-process, and loans directly to foreign customers of our exporting clients, including those available through:

  • Export-Import Bank of the United States
  • Export Development (Canada)
  • International Finance Corporation
  • Inter-American Development Bank
  • European Bank for Reconstruction and Development

Keep your borrowing availability strong

Longer payment terms allowed for foreign sales can tie up cash flow and strain borrowing availability. Alternatives for financing exports might involve arranging a pre-committed sale of the anticipated receivable or taking out credit insurance to cover nonpayment. Either option reduces or eliminates the foreign political and transfer risks.
