The prospecting of foreign markets implies specific investments which, even in the event of success, are only amortized gradually, according to the orders recorded.

The principle of prospecting insurance is to cover part of the prospecting costs incurred, which could not be amortized by a sufficient volume of sales in the guaranteed area. Coface prospecting insurance has two advantages: Financial support, insurance against loss suffered in the event of commercial failure.

This short-term export financing formula does not require (except in special cases) the presentation of copies of assigned invoices, nor customs documents or shipping documents to the European Union. It is based on the economic reality of your business: namely, your export activity.


Your prospecting actions may generate a need for cash. The cash advance for your prospecting expenses, which you benefit from through APED, can be guaranteed by COFACE. Your investments in the development of export activities, or of setting up abroad can be financed by: The Bpifrance Export Development Loan, in partnership with APED.

The latter covers: Intangible expenditure, tangible investments with low pledge value (computer equipment, for example), increase in working capital requirements (WCR), generated by the development project, amounts between 30,000 euros and 3 million euros.


At APED we offer you the investment in SPAC (Special Purpose Acquisition Company) which can be translated as "special purpose acquisition company". APED now allows you to PSPCs: an alternative form of investment compared to private equity and traditional IPOs. This alternative form is based on 3 points:

1. PSPCs allow the retail investor to access private equity investments that were previously only available to institutional clients, such as hedge funds and investment banks.

2. Additionally, PSPCs are more transparent than private equity investments, as evidenced by SEC reporting obligations such as filing financial statements and shareholder voting rights regarding any merger or acquisition.

3. Finally, PSPCs offer a clearly defined risk to investors by holding the IPO proceeds in trust and repaying that amount if an acquisition is not made within 18-24 months.

What you must remember :

  • PSPCs are faster than IPOs.

  • PSPCs are cheaper than IPOs.

  • PSPCs are less risky than IPOs.
