EXIAR insures export of car tyres to Uzbekistan
The Russian Agency for Export Credit and Investment Insurance (EXIAR) and Novikombank have signed a confirmed letter of credit insurance contract for the payment of shipments of Russian-manufactured car tyres to Uzbekistan.
Novikombank was the confirming and financing bank for the letter of credit, issued by Invest Finance Bank (Uzbekistan) for use by KAMA Trading House (Russia) on behalf of its client. As part of the deal, EXIAR provided insurance coverage against the issuing bank's failure to indemnify Novikombank.
Confirmed letter of credit insurance is a product offered by EXIAR which is intended to protect a Russian bank confirming letters of credit from the risk of non-payment due to commercial or political reasons from the issuing bank under a letter of credit.
The Russian Agency for Export Credit and Investment Insurance (EXIAR) was established in 2011 as an open joint-stock company. EXIAR’s mission is to support Russian high-tech exports by insuring export credits against commercial and political risks, as well as Russian investments abroad against political risks. Vnesheconombank is the sole shareholder of EXIAR. The agency's charter capital is RUB 30 billion.
