Political risks insurance covers foreign investors, importers, exporters, construction contractors and lenders, against acts of sovereign intervention or changes in the political situation in the country. There must be a 'cross-border' interest for the consideration of Political risk insurance, as cover is not generally available against actions of one's own government.

The persistent expansion into developing markets in worldwide bi/multi-lateral infrastructure investment, trading and corporate operations, along with continuing geopolitical uncertainty and economic volatility means that the demand for Political risks insurance is as high as ever. Political landscapes can quickly, and dramatically change, leaving overseas operations critically exposed to the actions of a host government.

Examples of business that might purchase Political risk insurance include:

  • Banks and financial institutions
  • Commodity traders
  • Construction contractors
  • Export credit agencies
  • Manufacturers
  • Natural resources extractive industries
  • Renewable Energy
  • Trade finance companies

We specialise in providing tailored insurance solutions designed to protect a client from losses that might be incurred when either trading or investing overseas, particularly in less developed or more economically unstable countries where losses stem directly from action by foreign governments.

The risks we are able to provide solutions for include, but are not limited to:

  • Confiscation, Expropriation, Nationalisation and Deprivation (CEND)
  • Selective discrimination
  • Contract frustration
  • Currency inconvertibility and/or Transfer risk
  • Non-Repossession of leased equipment, including aircraft
  • Forced abandonment
  • Forced divestiture
  • Licence repudiation
  • Arbitration award default Import/Export embargo
  • Unfair calling of bonds

Lenders' Interest coverage is also available to project finance banks, covering the non-repayment of a loan as a result of the foreign government interfering with the operation of the financed asset.

Although Political risk insurance differs to Political violence and Terrorism insurance, we can always offer you a combination of these to secure comprehensive protection.
