Political Risk, Political Violence and Terrorism

In an increasingly volatile geopolitical climate, you need dependable protection for your commercial operations from underwriters who understand your precise needs. 

We cover businesses against losses arising from war on land, confiscation and expropriation, political violence and terrorism. Cover includes compensation for losses affecting both fixed and movable assets, as well as business interruption and physical damage.

Experts in our field

Our team has more than 20 years’ experience in this line of business and has been involved in writing many of the market wordings in use today. Our deep experience and specialist product knowledge equip us to deliver solutions for some of the more unusual risks our customers face.

A customer-centred approach

At QBE, we place strong emphasis on putting the customer at the heart of our underwriting process. We pride ourselves on offering solutions that are tailored to the precise needs of our individual customers, wherever a risk is located – and whether it is big or small, high-profile or discreet.

Working in partnership

We’ve worked with some of our customers for more than 20 years; they stay with us because we understand their business and they trust us to deliver. They also know that we’ll see them through thick and thin; we won’t stop covering a territory if it becomes challenging – we will ensure they have the right cover in place to weather the storm.

Combined coverage

We are unique in being able to deliver a policy that combines Political Risk, Political Violence and Terrorism with other coverages. We work closely with our colleagues in teams such as Oil and Gas, Cargo and Fine Art and Specie to create seamlessly tailored solutions for your specific needs.

There when you need us

You can count on us to respond promptly and effectively when an incident affects your business – no matter how challenging the territory in which it occurs. And as our Claims team is highly experienced in this class of business – and works closely with our underwriters – you will always deal with someone who understands the challenges you are dealing with.
