Washington, D.C. December 9, 2015 – Risk Cooperative, a specialized strategy, risk and capital management firm announces its appointment as one of 4 U.S. Export-Import Bank registered brokers in D.C., among a select group of national partners able to conduct business on behalf of U.S. exporters. This appointment enables Risk Cooperative to help small to mid-sized enterprises gain access to Ex-Im’s wide array of trade and export credit insurance solutions. Founded in 1934, Ex-Im has been the centerpiece of the U.S. government’s trade and investment facilitation programs, of which 90% benefit small to mid-sized enterprises.
With Ex-Im’s reauthorization, Congress and President Obama reassert how vitally important this agency is for broad-based U.S. economic competitiveness. Navigating the application, quoting and order process for Ex-Im’s trade credit and export credit insurance solutions is streamlined through the appointment of licensed private sector brokers. Risk Cooperative brings years of experience in global risk, strategy and business giving U.S. exporters unparalleled opportunities for market expansion and growth.
Risk Cooperative’s CEO, Dante Disparte, shared his views. “Ex-Im fills an important void in the market and the long overdue reauthorization of this self-funded agency positions Risk Cooperative to help U.S. exporters gain access to global trade. Adding Ex-Im’s solutions to our extensive strategy and insurance portfolio will help our customers harness risk as a catalyst for growth rather than a cost.” Risk Cooperative has long campaigned for Ex-Im’s reauthorization and applauds the decision to bring this important agency back online.
