Export Risk Insurance

Swiss Export Risk Insurance is a Swiss government institution under public law that replaced the Swiss Export Guarantee Agency on January 1, 2007. It insures Swiss exports practically all over the world.

Swiss exporters in the Swiss Commercial Register can insure themselves against export risks that private insurers offer only rarely or selectively.

The government revamped the previous agency in September 2004, expanding its scope to cover private buyer risk.

In the 1990s the agency insured Swiss exports for projects that were considered ecologically and socially controversial. These included construction of the Three Gorges dam in China and Turkey's Ilisu dam.
