2 About HBOR is the Croatian Bank for Reconstruction and Development
Established in 1992 as a specialized financial institution with a public mandate 100% owned by the Republic of Croatia Credit rating: Baa3 (Moody’s) BBB- (S&P) HBOR’s triple role: ) Development bank 2.) Export finance bank 3.) Export Credit Agency

3 The business of exports
In today’s international trade, a precondition for the realization of an export transaction is very often the possibility of sale with deferred payment, i.e. on credit This alters the business relation with the foreign buyer to a credit relation, creating additional costs and risks The usual insurance instruments against non-payment, such as letters of credit and guarantees, are often impossible to obtain from buyers and sometimes offer insufficient security. Therefore export insurance against political and commercial risks has been developed

4 In what Environment do we act?
The primary sector in which HBOR operates is the insurance of non-marketable risks However, an „escape clause“ allows state intervention where the marketable risks become temporarily non-marketable owing to the unavailability of private insurance or reinsurance capacity In this way, HBOR can complement the Croatian insurance market in line with EU regulations HBOR provides comprehensive cover Coverage can be granted for goods/services of Croatian origin (min.40% content of Croatian goods/services) or less in case of national interest

5 What We Offer Pre-export financing Guarantees Pre-shipment Payment
As a public export credit agency, we offer export credit insurance programs on the state's account We can accompany the domestic exporter during all stages of the export cycle: Pre-export financing Guarantees Pre-shipment Payment


7 Pre-payment insurance
Pre-export financing insurance Pre-shipment insurance Who benefits? Exporters facing lack of working capital for pre-export financing, in case when no customary collateral can be offered to creditors or in case when the collateral is not sufficient to meet the loan terms and conditions. Who we protect We provide support for exporters whose goods are manufactured according to a specific order and cannot be sold to any other buyer.

8 Guarantee insurance What is the goal? Promote exporters, who are confronted with the need for first-class bank guarantees issued in favor of their buyers as a condition for entering into export contracts. Who is insured? The Program enables banks in the Republic of Croatia to insure the risk of payment under a guarantee issued for the purpose of winning or performing an export contract, owing to an unfair and/or fair calling up to 80% of loss. Simultaneously, it safeguards exporters against political risks in foreign markets and the risk of unfair calling under a guarantee.
