Berne Union

The Berne Union is the International Association representing the global export credit and investment insurance industry, with over 85 member companies among the major national Export Credit Agencies, private credit insurers and multilateral institutions worldwide.

The mission of this not-for-profit trade association, founded in 1934, is to actively facilitate cross-border trade by supporting international acceptance of sound principles in export credits and foreign investments. This is achieved by providing a forum for professional exchange, sharing of expertise and networking amongst members, as well as through engagement in collaborative projects with other stakeholders from across the wider Trade Finance industry.

SACE is an active member at the Berne Union and currently sits in the organisation’s Management Committee. SACE also held the Vice-presidency of the Union from 2014 to 2016.
