Market gap explained


Export Finance Australia is respectful of a client’s relationship banks and will not compete for business with them.

Our terms are commercial, market based and not concessional.

We work in a complimentary fashion with banks or on a bi-lateral basis.

Private sector financing options should be explored before engaging Export Finance Australia.

If banks are unwilling to support a transaction because the project is economically unviable or has poor risk allocation then that does not represent a market gap.

Our demonstration role to the private sector can also encourage the private sector to provide finance (directly or indirectly) in support of Australian exporters.

Typical market gaps:

  • emerging and frontier markets
  • specific industries, e.g. shipping and defence
