Still Live: Global Export Finance Survey 2023

Region:
Middle East & Africa, Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe
Managing Editor
TXF's industry leading Global Export Finance Survey provides the benchmark for sentiment in the industry in 2023. It's already showing some interesting early trends. There is still time for you to make your thoughts heard.

Marrying both quantitative and qualitative data sets helps provide a coherent lens through which to view the real impact of the economic and geopolitical headwinds blowing across the whole export finance market. From banks, exporters and lawyers to private insurers, ECAs and project sponsors, there are no stakeholders overlooked in this comprehensive report.  

Take part in the survey here

To gauge market sentiment from the survey, here are a few highlights we’ve already had from respondents. Do you agree with them? 

When asked whether pricing in the ECA market had kept pace with the general higher funding in 2022, nearly two-thirds of respondents said that pricing had not, which suggests a tightening in the overall cost of ECA debt.  

Furthermore, more than three-quarters of respondents said that they had seen banks reducing their pricing for sustainable deals. Also, respondents were starkly split down the middle over whether they would be willing to pay more for green financial products. This is emblematic of the willingness for ECA stakeholders to absorb an uptick in pricing, and conversely to reduce it. 

The need to further reform – or even scrap – the OECD Consensus on Export Credits, which respondents on average were moderately satisfied with, is still a paramount issue for the market, according to the 142 people that have already answered this question in the survey.  

In addition to this survey, we'll be asking for your views on the Ukraine conflict, unsettled macroeconomic conditions, and proposals for a review of the OECD arrangement on export credits. Also, for the first time, we'll also be asking respondents to highlight the market's leading providers of legal and insurance services in export finance. This will allow TXF to highlight the leading providers of these services and best practice in export finance advisory. 

The survey is confidential and anonymous and will take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. We welcome your thoughts.

All of the data will be collected and analysed in the final Global Export Finance Industry Survey 2023 that is due for release the second quarter of 2023.
