Political unrest is a real and unpredictable threat to foreign direct investments. Whilst traditionally associated with emerging markets, developed nations are not immune.  

Political risk insurance not only protects your overseas investments, but enables you to grow your global footprint with the peace of mind that if an incident were to happen, you are financially covered.

Miller has been assisting clients to protect their overseas assets with comprehensive and competitive political risk coverage for almost three decades.

With access to both the London and international markets, we can arrange integrated contract and asset-based programmes on a single or multi-year ‘non-cancellable’ basis, covering both individual exposures and global portfolios.

Perils covered

Protecting overseas investments and fixed or mobile assets, coverage would respond where political violence or government action/inaction results in:

  • confiscation, expropriation or nationalisation of assets
  • currency inconvertibility / non-transfer of dividends or funds
  • revocation of licences or permits
  • physical damage or forced abandonment
  • selective discrimination
  • forced divestiture 
“Political risk insurance not only protects your overseas investments, but enables you to grow your global footprint with the peace of mind that if an incident were to happen, you are financially covered.”
