International Trade Insurance

International trade insurance for uncertain times

Ukraine, Sudan and Burkina Faso are just three examples of countries where war, civil unrest and regime change have seriously affected businesses overnight. Trade insurance is designed to protect your business interests when political or commercial situations cause potentially serious issues.

Cover for high-risk areas of the globe

When you work in less developed countries, the political, trade and judicial systems can be less robust than in Western economies. Our bespoke international trade insurance, built around your specific business, will provide the protection you need to confidently run your business and gain backing from investors.

We can help you to secure cover for:

  • Trade and Political Risk insurance to secure finance and protect projects, assets, goods and services in the event of non-payment, political or civil unrest.
  • Exports and imports to protect against default of licence or loss due to sanctions, embargoes, war or cancellation.
  • Your overseas operational assets, products or stocks lost or delayed due to sanctions, embargoes, political unrest, war or terrorist activity.
  • Finance, lending or fixed investments required by banks or other private financiers to protect their investment in your venture.

Bellwood Prestbury is an expert in helping banks and financial institutions, funds and private family offices to protect overseas investments. We also arrange cover for trade finance, ensuring that investments in goods and services are protected should Letters of Credit, Bonds and Guarantees fail to be honoured due to political risks.
