Abstract: 

This report is a first-time overarching assessment of availability and suitability of International Financial Institute (IFI) Risk Mitigation instruments and has been compiled through a detailed questionnaire based feedback from more than 40 infrastructure investors with total assets under management exceeding $2 trillion, project developers and construction companies, global banking institutions, insurance and reinsurance companies, multilateral development banks and professional services firms.


This report is not an exhaustive, detailed assessment of all Risk Mitigation instruments and products that are used both in infrastructure investments and other investment classes. Instead, it focuses on those products that are used to mitigate one type of these risks that make infrastructure a distinct investment class, namely, political risks.
