Businesses are increasingly exposed to credit and political risks; not only in emerging economies but also in established international and domestic markets.

Aspen's Credit & Political Risks team provides the best possible protection across these areas of risk. We have the capacity and specialist expertise to help you understand and manage the specific risks faced by your business, helping you to:

  • carry out international commerce with greater confidence
  • protect assets at home and overseas
  • protect payment streams and dividend flows

We find the best kind of cover and create bespoke products precisely suited to each client's situation; offering continuous, consistent and competitive ways to deal with an ever-riskier world.

Our team has many years' experience in this specialist field, providing the knowledge and experience to address a range of financial and political risk insurance needs. Besides insurance, our underwriters have backgrounds in law and banking and we can communicate with our clients and brokers in fluent French, German and Spanish.

All this information and more is available to take away on our Credit & Political Risk leaflet.
