Political risks

The current international political situation often makes the process of international and investment transactions difficult. A primary risk factor is a unstable political environment, especially in developing countries where there is the threat of war, revolution, strikes or other riots.

Furthermore, the main policy instruments which threaten the property and also the very existence of economic are expropriation, confiscation, and revocation of licenses, changes in price regulation and the inability to repatriate the profits.

The protection of employees is also important. An increasing threat of kidnapping people is becoming an instrument of worldwide terrorism. International insurance markets offer an effective solution to these problems. The solution to the threat of terrorism is insuring the risks that simplify the decision making process and enable the fulfilment of objectives, despite the adverse conditions of the current political and economic environment.

High-quality insurance with a high international rating also allows financing of a particular project by banks or an equity investor.


Political risk insurance is specialized insurance for companies doing business or conducting operations in foreign countries. The insurance addresses the business exposures to loss faced by these companies as a result of governmental action either foreign or domestic.
