Political Risk

We offer coverage for political and credit risk for traders, exporters, contractors and corporations involved in direct investment and contracts/business activities overseas.

Political Risk
We cover the unpredictable political risks to which foreign assets and investments are exposed but which are beyond the control of our clients.
In addition to acts of confiscation, expropriation, nationalisation, deprivation (CEND), political violence and war, these risks can include:

  • forced abandonment
  • currency inconvertibility
  • civil disturbances
  • embargoes
  • other types of political risks

Private and Sovereign Credit Risk
We provide clients with protection against credit risk on privately-owned and government-owned counter parties. We cover defaults arising from both commercial and political risk events, which can include non-payment by a company or sovereign, non-honouring of a guarantee or letter of credit and unfair calling of on-demand bonds/ guarantees. Our coverage can accommodate a wide variety of finance structures as loss payee.
