Political Risk

Zurich’s political risk insurance covers investors, banks, contractors, and other firms with exposure in emerging markets from risks that can potentially end their operation including expropriation, political violence, currency inconvertibility, contract frustration, and non-honoring of sovereign or state-owned enterprise debt.

Your benefits

  • Market-leading expertise: Named “Best Private Insurer” by Trade Finance magazine for thirteen years straight, our underwriters offer an in-depth understanding of emerging markets, your assets at risk, and trade and project structures.
  • Global presence: We have 12 Credit & Political Risk underwriting offices around the world: Washington, DC; New York; Toronto, London, Paris, Madrid, Frankfurt, Zurich, Singapore, Tokyo, Sydney, Melbourne, and we have written risks in most emerging market countries.
  • Long terms: Coverages with terms up to 15 years, which are often required but difficult to obtain for emerging market infrastructure and natural resource projects.
  • Strong capacity: Up to USD $150 million per transaction, one of the highest in the market.
  • Broad network: We are a Berne Union member and well known leader among export credit agencies, multilateral institutions, and other insurers, which can help you optimize coverage terms, capacity, and flexibility.
