Credit and Political Risks

If your business operates in regions of the world where geo-political tension or an unstable economic environment is never far from the surface, it’s critically important to have robust insurance in place. In particular, it pays to be wary of the financial losses that could be incurred from credit uncertainty and political upheaval. Having robust trade credit protection and political risk cover in place should always be a top priority.

We have many clients who conduct businesses in areas where political coups or economic breakdown are a fact of everyday life. Renewable energy, oil and gas production, power projects – these are all sectors where business is conducted in remote faraway places. Often this entails significant financial investment – and it all needs to be underpinned by appropriately specialist insurance.
AMI Specialty’s extensive knowledge of third world countries has been acquired over a period of decades, working closely with clients across multiple sectors. This places us in an advantageous position to find the appropriate political and credit risk insurance solutions to protect businesses, institutions and people – wherever in the world those risks may occur.
