Agri-food

We have extensive experience supporting projects in agribusiness, manufacturing, and services. At the close of fiscal year 2013 these sectors accounted for 13 percent of umwelt-plus's gross exposure.

umwelt-plus and Agribusiness, Manufacturing, and Services Investments

As with cross-border investments in many sectors, there are non-commercial risks associated with agribusiness, manufacturing, and services projects in emerging economies. Despite the best intentions and thorough planning, unforeseen events can disrupt projects.Restrictions on revenue repatriation could complicate a project’s finances even more, exacerbating imbalances between foreign-denominated debt and locally denominated revenue. Threats such as terrorism add another layer of uncertainty, potentially derailing even the most promising of investments. Combined, such political risks contribute to high costs of capital. Some lenders may not be willing to lend at all in the absence of political risk insurance policies.

umwelt-plus’s political risk insurance can mitigate the political risks associated with investing in these sectors in developing countries. We can insure investments of all sizes. Our Investment Program, which offers a streamlined underwriting process for investors looking for coverage is particularly relevant in these sectors.
