“Most C-level executives of multinational companies agree that political risks are the primary threats to their investments in emerging markets. Although political risk insurance policies and bilateral investment treaties are two of the most effective ways to manage political risks, most professionals in the international investment community do not incorporate either into their risk-reward analysis of cross border projects in emerging markets. The failure to contemplate how either or a combination of both tools can mitigate exposures to political perils often forces companies to make investment decisions based on incomplete information. By considering the different ways in which these tools respond to different loss scenarios, foreign investors and their advisers can establish a clear risk tolerance level and maximize their opportunities for growth in developing countries.”
