SACE offers a wide range of financial and insurance products and services to support the competitiveness of Italian businesses: export credit, foreign investment protection, financial guarantees and surety bonds.
Created in 1977 as a special section of the National Insurance Institute (INA), SACE was transformed into a joint-stock company in 2004. Since then, thanks to a comprehensive overhaul of the business model and a progressive extension of its scope of operation, SACE has proven to be a global player and a unique partner for Italian businesses, able to help and support them through every stage of their growth projects in Italy and across the world.
Alongside the typical services of a credit export agency, SACE offers the surety bonds required to operate abroad and provides guarantees to help with obtaining loans to support the international development of Italian businesses and the implementing projects of strategic importance for the Italian economy.
Backed by more than thirty years of experience in the assessment, assumption and management of risks associated with operating in foreign markets, SACE supports its client companies through a network of offices throughout Italy and in emerging countries with the greatest potential.
SACE belongs to the Cassa Depositi e Prestiti group and holds the entire share capital of SACE BT and SACE Fct.
