Operating in foreign countries, especially in emerging markets, can expose your company to additional risks related to unpredictable foreign government acts or political events. FCIA offers an array of political risks coverage that can help protect your investment in foreign countries.
Political Risk coverage protects you against loss in value of your foreign investments or assets resulting from specified political events during the policy period in the country where the investments or assets are held.
An investment is typically your equity investment in an overseas subsidiary/joint venture or a shareholder loan made to such entities. Assets covered include the assets owned by the foreign subsidiary/joint venture or assets you own that are on site in the foreign country. Coverage can be purchased for operations in a single country or for a portfolio of countries for any specified coverages below.
