Commodity credit risk insurance

We bind credit insurance cover for business-specific risk exposure.
Credit and political risks are an inevitable part of the commodities business. Industrial companies, physical merchants, banks, and derivatives brokers all have to deal with a wide range of counterparty and sovereign risk exposures. The amounts at stake and the price volatility inherent to the commodities markets require robust, and sometimes complex, risk transfer solutions.

At Cofarco, we go beyond simply brokering run-of-the-mill insurance policies. For us each transaction, each risk, is different. We apply our commodities and structured finance expertise to assess the underlying risks and design the corresponding bespoke cover. As finance specialists, we also pay specific attention to how an insurance policy fits in with our clients’ wider financial arrangements.
