Welcome to the New Zealand Export Credit Office
The New Zealand Export Credit Office (NZECO) provides financial guarantee products for New Zealand exporters and banks. Our products help exporters manage risk and capitalise on trade opportunities around the globe.
As well as working directly with exporters, we work closely with commercial financiers in New Zealand and offshore to support and improve the competitiveness of New Zealand exporters. NZECO is currently located in the Treasury and obligations to third parties are guaranteed by the New Zealand government.
NZECO’s guarantee products are intended to extend the capacity of facilities in the private sector. The Government’s maximum liability under the scheme is NZD 740 million.
