Insurance Against Political Violence For Businesses Investing Overseas

This program is designed to promote and facilitate U.S. investment in emerging market economies. Specialized insurance programs protect businesses against the loss of assets or income due to war, revolution, insurrection, politically motivated civil strife, terrorism, or sabotage. The insurance also compensates for property and income loss. Insurance under this program does not cover loss due to labor strife, or student unrest without a political objective. Rates vary from .20 per $100 of coverage to .70 per $100 of coverage depending on the entity requesting coverage.
