Chubb political risk insurance keeps you covered when overseas areas of operation are hit by political conflict and economic turmoil

Political unrest and civil conflict present multinational operations with all kinds of threats and challenges, but we will protect your business against today’s geopolitical uncertainties. Chubb political risk insurance offers broad cover for many losses – including asset seizure, inability to export and forced abandonment of overseas operations.


Who it’s for

Our political risk cover is perfect for entities with overseas exposures including:

  • Multinational corporations with subsidiaries and projects in overseas locations
  • Financial institutions lending money into emerging markets
  • Contractors and traders with overseas physical assets

What it covers

Chubb political risk coverage can protect your company in these kinds of situations:

Expropriation and discrimination
A wide range of arbitrary government actions can have an impact on your business. Risks include confiscation, expropriation and nationalisation of your assets; forced divestiture of subsidiaries; cancellation of operating licences and breaches of contract

Political violence and forced abandonment
When political violence erupts where you operate, our insurance gives you broad protection. You’re covered for damage to or destruction of physical assets, and if you have to abandon assets or your entire foreign operation due to political conflict

Inability to import/export
Cover applies for when your business is forced to cease operations as a result of government imposed export/import restrictions, as well as for the loss of products that can’t be exported or imported.
