Advance payment and performance bonds

A request for a tender received by your company or an export agreement you have signed often requires an advance payment bond or a performance bond.

Even a small detail can decide a deal in your favour

Once you have agreed on an Export Guarantee with us, your bank operating in Finland can grant an advance payment bond or a performance bond to your customer with a lower risk.
