In a world full of political uncertainty, mitigation of political risk is a significant factor in the success of overseas projects, investments, and contracts. By obtaining coverage against possible losses resulting from political actions or inaction by the host government, a company is free to focus on increasing its profit potential.
In addition to traditional political risk insurance programs, risk transfer strategies have become increasingly more flexible and can be adapted to better suit the needs of our clients. They can be channeled through captive management companies, special purpose vehicles, or can be used by financial institutions to mitigate the political risk in their portfolio of emerging market assets. Through creativity and flexibility, Marsh's Political Risk Practice has placed difficult risks and developed customized solutions to complex client issues.
