Credit, surety and political

International trade is the lifeblood of the world economy and has grown exponentially in the past few decades. The growth of new and emerging markets means that this trajectory will, if anything, accelerate in the future.

Tokio Marine Kiln’s products are a significant enabler for exports, imports and international projects: without insurance for political risks and trade credit, much international trade and investment simply would not take place.

Our focus is on the full spectrum of assureds throughout the value chain including, but not limited to, banks, traders, ship-owners, charterers, manufacturers, the service industry, the oil industry and both importers and exporters.

We offer the full range of policy coverage:

  • War and terrorism
  • Confiscation, expropriation, deprivation, nationalisation, licence cancellation, embargo and abandonment
  • Contract frustration
  • Trade credit

Our maximum line size is USD60m and our maximum policy period is five years.
