Credit & Political Risks

Businesses, banks and commercial government entities are increasingly exposed to credit and political risks across emerging economies and established markets.

With the capacity and specialist expertise to help our clients manage the specific credit and political risks faced by their businesses, Aspen Credit and Political Risk team are able to deliver cost and capital effective insurance solutions. 

Businesses, banks and commercial government entities are increasingly exposed to credit and political risks in emerging economies and established markets. We strive to provide clients the best protection for these risks.   

Aspen CPR is based in London, and through Lloyd’s is able to insure a range of clients from across the globe, including corporates, financial institutions, multilaterals, developmental institutions and commercial government entities. We have the capability to write long term policies across the full suite of products and so can cater for a range of tenor requirements.  

Aspen CPR has 10 underwriters and 3 credit analysts based in London, with around 150 years of combined experience across the credit and political risk space, both within Insurance and in Financial Institutions. Such experience allows us to fully understand the risks faced by clients and provide coverage that best meets needs. Aspen also recognises the need for innovative solutions in order to respond to market trends  and is therefore able to provide bespoke covers and policies at clients’ request.   

Our expertise in CPR extends into the claims management arena, where our claims specialists work in close proximity to our underwriters to deliver a prompt and efficient service to our clients.  Aspen firmly believes that a smooth claims process is integral to the success of our business, and we work with clients to ensure valid claims are paid in a timely manner. 

Aspen CPR launched Project Leaf in 2022, whereby the team aims “to be our Insured’s Sustainable Partner of Choice with 66% of premium originating from transactions which have a favourable ESG classification”.
