ALLENTOWN, Pa. (December 22, 2014) – Creditsafe, the world’s most-used supplier of online company credit reports, today announced that it has been named by Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank) as an approved supplier of company credit reports.
After reviewing Creditsafe’s domestic and global credit reporting offerings, Ex-Im Bank has found Creditsafe to be a comprehensive and reputable source of credit information, therefore, adding the company to its list of approved credit reporting bureaus.
Ex-Im Bank is the official export credit agency of the U.S. federal government. When companies apply for trade credit insurance from Ex-Im Bank, they are required to order a credit report on their foreign partners and customers from an approved credit reporting bureau, like Creditsafe, and include it in their policy application. Doing so ensures the company has taken important steps to safeguard itself from financial losses when trading across borders.
“Obtaining a credit report is one of the most important things that companies can do to minimize risk when trading overseas,” said Matthew Debbage, president of Creditsafe’s U.S. operations. “We’re delighted to be named one of Ex-Im Bank’s approved credit reporting bureaus and to help its customers be as successful as possible when conducting business in international markets.”
Ex-Im Bank provides export guarantee financing to U.S. businesses, helping them turn export opportunities into sales. Its export credit insurance products allow businesses to increase their export sales by limiting international risk, extending credit to their international buyers, and enabling them to obtain greater access to working capital funds.
