    It would be no exaggeration to describe the Export-Import Bank of Korea as Asia’s star issuer. No other issuer from ex-Australia, ex-Japan Asia prints as much in the offshore bond markets annually as Kexim, nor across a wider breadth of currencies or with as consistent a record of superlatives, be it for size or canny and often daring timing.
