Medium Term and Political Risks

Key facts

Political risk insurance protects you against political and economic events overseas; these risks could include shortage of foreign exchange, licence cancellation or contract frustration as a result of political unrest (including governmental action, war or embargo).

Limited political risk cover is provided by most insurers offering whole turnover, catastrophe, single or principal customer cover on overseas trade.

More comprehensive and project related political risk cover is available from specialist insurers.
