Our value

We are delighted that Simon Coote, Deputy Director of Advisory at Oxford Analytica, has been invited to speak along with our partners at Willis Towers Watson on a panel focusing on identifying and mitigating risk in foreign markets, which will explore the following themes:

  • As the volume of cross-border investments expands into an ever-more complex geopolitical world, the number of companies affected by expropriation and other politically motivated government actions will increase.
  • How political risk insurance can protect companies' international operations against the negative effects of arbitrary government action.
  • Political risk events and claims, the current outlook on global politics and economics—including the instability in Ukraine and Russia and ISIS in Iraq— and the different types of political risk insurance and policy wording.
