About us

Česká exportní banka, a.s. (Czech Export Bank; "ČEB") is a specialised, directly and indirectly state-owned banking institution. Established in 1995, it forms one of the pillars of the government's pro-export policy system.

ČEB's mission is to support Czech exports and the renown of the Czech Republic as a well-established international exporter, and thus promote the overall competitiveness of Czech products throughout the world.

ČEB focuses on financial services related to exports. ČEB has many years of experience in financing major export transactions of Czech exporters, as well as financing export contracts for smaller units or partial deliveries. Currently, it is foreign buyers - Czech exporters´ partners - to whom most ČEB´s products are being disbursed, and for whom Czech goods and services are becoming attractive, not only due to their quality and reasonable prices.

The bank puts emphasis on the complexity of its export financing products range. Currently, the bank sees its important role, alongside financing exports of goods and services, also in providing financing for engineering projects, especially linear-style constructions abroad. The bank executes a range of structured and project finance models. ČEB provides favourable financing facilities for Czech exporters, supporting their projects of building new production capacities abroad or acquiring equity shares in foreign companies. Česká exportní banka has also significantly expanded its services of financing small and medium enterprises, whose business is tied to exports. ČEB does not provide consumer credits and never offers its products by phone!

All ČEB´s activities are in full compliance with the rules of WTO (World Trade Organisation), the relevant recommendations of OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development) and EU directives.

In compliance with the Section 123 of the Act No. 256/2004 Sb. on Capital Market Undertakings, Česká exportní banka selected the Czech Republic as the EU member state where to comply with the obligations stipulated in chapter II and chapter V of the same Act.
