Finnvera's Half-Year 2020

The coronavirus pandemic significantly increased demand for Finnvera’s SME financing. Export financing decreased a little over one fifth from last year. Finnvera’s result in January-June showed a loss. The loss was caused by the significant credit loss provisions in export credit guarantee and special guarantee operations, made as a result of the pandemic.

Start Guarantee for the start-up

Start Guarantee is intended for newly launched enterprises that are owned by private individuals and meet the SME definition applied by the EU. The bank will submit an online application for a Start Guarantee to Finnvera on behalf of the enterprise.
