Export Credit Guarantee Programs

GSM Program Foreign Financial Institution Obligors
(for the GSM-102 & Facility Guarantee Programs)

Please note: The GSM programs are commercial programs so CCC is willing to consider any eligible bank that applies although we may not be able to approve it. We are not directing any business to the currently approved banks or any one bank. We are merely providing this information to assist interested parties in developing business. The list is not necessarily complete as we are continually updating it by adding or deleting names. Some programs may also be temporarily suspended. The credit limits, current exposure, and available limit information should be obtained from the foreign bank directly.
