> Political Risk Mitigation

A major focus of HCF is political risk mitigation, particularly through the involvement of international development institutions, export credit agencies and the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (“MIGA”) of the World Bank. From 2011 to 2016, we acted as an agent for MIGA, one of seven globally and the only agent exclusively focussed on the Metals & Mining sectors. In addition to facilitating the signing of landmark transactions, this agent role has helped us gain an unparalleled knowledge of MIGA and its products as well as access to the highest levels within the Agency.

Examples of political risk include:

  • war and civil disturbance
  • expropriation
  • currency inconvertibility
  • breach of contract by sovereigns

Political risk insurance has the effect of mobilising liquidity in the funding market, both from equity investors and from lenders. Mitigating political risk can be the key to mobilising the liquidity required for the development of a project. As part of the World Bank, MIGA has the capability to bring a significant amount of influence to bear due to the constituents of its shareholder base.
