Dutch Trade and Investment Fund - DTIF

Do you want to do business abroad? And are you finding it difficult to raise sufficient funds? The Dutch Trade and Investment Fund (DTIF) provides loans, guarantees and export financing. This enables you to take the next step towards realising your international ambitions.

DTIF consists of 3 components: Investment, Imports and Exports. The fund was established in 2016 and replaces the Facility Emerging Markets (FOM) and Finance for International Business (FIB) financing instruments.

International enterprise

DTIF is for Dutch entrepreneurs wanting to do business in foreign markets. It is available for all countries except the developing countries and emerging markets covered by the Dutch Good Growth Fund (DGGF).

If you want to do business in developing countries or upcoming markets, you can apply to the Dutch Good Growth Fund. See the list of DGGF countries.

The fund was set up by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Netherlands Enterprise Agency acts as administrator of DTIF.
