Cover my risks for major projects

Sales of capital goods or services, structured trade financing and other investment projects may require specific or one-off guarantees to cover economic or political risks in a country, particularly countries in emerging markets of Asia, Africa and South America. You may have specific request on insurance products which link to a particular context, period and market etc. For your business, you therefore want to take out cover on a case-by-case basis.
Structured Trade and Political Risk Insurance

We know that requirements vary significantly from one business to another, so we have designed a unique range of modular cover to cover political and trade risks for medium term projects.
Structured Trade and Political Risk Insurance
A manufacturer of industrial equipment is buying iron ore from a Chinese miner. The manufacturer advances the payment to be reimbursed through shipments over a 12-month period.
After 6 months, the Chinese government imposes a ban on iron ore exports to keep it for the domestic market, making it impossible for the Chinese miner to send its shipments.
Coface indemnifies the amount of advance payment not yet reimbursed by shipments, helping the company to minimize its loss.
