Is Political Risk Affecting Your Infrastructure Projects?

 


An increasing number of investors in infrastructure development projects and operational assets are building political risk assessments and mitigation strategies into their project decision making processes.  

As the global political landscape in both developed and developing economies continues to change, political risk is moving up the risk agenda. This report examines risk mitigation strategies and conditions in the political risk insurance market.

Some of the findings and key messages from the report are as follows:

  • New infrastructure opportunities in foreign host nations carry vulnerabilities to political risks for investments.
  • Investors should make a comprehensive assessment of covered risks when considering insurance coverages.

The political risk insurance market has been generally favourable for buyers with abundant capacity and increasing competition.
