Credit, Political & Security Risk

Geopolitics has returned, together with localised political threats and considerable economic uncertainty. The business environment has rarely felt more volatile. Success depends upon identifying and taking the right risks. Volatility means those risks are constantly evolving and changing. JLT's Credit, Political & Security (CPS) team advise upon risk and structure solutions that enable trade and investment, mobilise finance and secure people and assets, realising opportunity in volatility.

JLT CPS arranges insurance contracts that indemnify loss arising from political risk, non-payment / performance risk, political violence risks, kidnap & ransom and contingency risks.

JLT CPS provides analysis and consultancy to help identify and manage political risk, measure political violence risks and build robust crisis management strategies to protect people and assets.

Our team of 186 CPS risk specialists forms a global practice, with CPS hubs of expertise in Austria, Belgium, Brazil,  Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, France, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, UAE, UK and USA.

We think globally, but act locally; we will deliver consistent best practice, market leverage, and competitive pricing, whilst addressing local nuance, wherever you are.

We have the privilege of working for leaders in sectors as diverse as agri business, oil and gas, industrial & engineering, leisure, mining, power, water, transport, telecommunications, financial institutions and the public sector. We are acknowledged as industry pioneers, whether opening the Asia CPS market a decade before others arrived, or being the first to address the needs of banks facing new regulatory capital requirements. Our clients are always at the centre of our activity, which is why we invest in unique analytical and consulting capability and are driven to constantly challenge convention to deliver the results our clients need.

Our specialist understanding of credit, political and security risks enables our clients to secure growth and deliver enhanced results to their stakeholders.
