Outlook 2020

Export finance & emerging markets

The export finance market in Asia is set to grow in 2020, with increased levels of activity expected to flow from established markets into emerging regions.

At ANZ, we expect to see increased opportunities right across the markets in which we operate, particularly out of large markets like South Korea and China, into developing regions such as Vietnam, Indonesia and India.

In Indonesia, activity is already beginning to pick up in the wake of 2019 elections in both the state-owned enterprise and the private sector.

In India, we’re seeing more customers looking to diversify their sources of finance and increasingly interested in the export credit market.

Here in Australia, we’re seeing a lot more opportunities with Export Finance Australia – the new name for Australia’s export finance agency - after the group moved to a more flexible Australian benefit agenda earlier in 2019.


Outlook 2020

The New Year is upon us. The year 2020 looms as a landmark one for the global economy as trade, technological and environmental factors drive change at a scale rarely seen.

At ANZ Institutional, we aim to help our customers put themselves in the best possible position to take advantage of these forces. Our subject-matter experts have the insight to offer market-leading thought leadership in a range of complex areas from across more than 30 global markets.

We asked our experts about the key factors they see shaping markets and industry in 2020 – and the opportunities and challenges within. We’ll be sharing the responses with you over the coming weeks.


The market is already seeing other export credit agencies operate increasingly flexibly, particularly around outbound investment on a national-interest basis.

The other key trend expected to play out in 2020 is the continued growth of sustainable investment and the crossover between emerging-market infrastructure and the global sustainability agenda.
