Frontier markets are too often distorted by creaking infrastructure, patchy information, skills shortages, anachronistic laws and regulations, corruption and rent-seeking, political upheaval, and government interference. This makes it difficult to raise finance or run a business where the potential rewards are the greatest. DeRisk works to overcome these difficulties with investment insurance.
DeRisk is an insurance advisor to investors in Africa and other fast-growing markets. We focus on using political risk insurance to help projects and businesses attract and qualify for international bank finance and private equity investment. Because getting the required insurance coverage can be difficult, DeRisk seeks to make it easier. DeRisk helps figure out what is insurable, identify the appropriate insurer and policy, and manage the application and underwriting process – from pricing to contract signature.
DeRisk has completed over 25 insurance transactions with MIGA, OPIC and others since 2006.
