Political Risk Insurance

Risk Mitigation

If you are looking to cover your risks when lending to a Canadian company with assets or investments in an emerging market, or to emerging-market governments that purchase Canadian goods and services, our insurance protects you against this exposure. Political Risk Insurance of Assets or Political Risk Insurance of Equity coverage can reduce your risk when lending to a customer with investments or physical assets in emerging markets, while Political Risk Insurance of Bank Loans and Political Risk Insurance of Non-Honouring of a Sovereign Obligation can help open the door to new lending opportunities with foreign governments and commercial borrowers in emerging markets.
