The latest market update provides insights to support risk allocation and management strategies to help businesses to grow in the current global environment.

It considers the changing risk landscape and the insurance market response across trade credit, surety, structured credit, and political risk. While several factors are expected to challenge businesses as they prepare for the year ahead, there are signs of resilience in the global economy that are likely to generate demand.

Key takeaways:

  • In general, recent economic reality has consistently outperformed market expectations.
  • However, the prospects for emerging markets are more volatile, with weak demand from advanced economies likely to impact export-dependent countries.
  • As the 2024 election cycle gets underway, some of the world’s largest democracies will vote in elections that could impact global trade, defense alliances, and overall political stability.
  • Despite an uncertain outlook, demand for trade credit insurance remains strong, while the surety market has maintained substantial capacity and provided stable pricing. Overall, political risk and structured credit insurers adapted throughout a volatile year and insurers’ risk appetite has not waned.
