Covered risks

What risks are covered under an Untied Loan Guarantee?

Untied Loan Guarantees provide cover against the risk of default on the repayment claim under a loan agreement.

The guarantee encompasses both political and commercial risks:


Political risks

  • State measures: Legislative or administrative measures
  • War, armed conflicts, riots and revolution abroad
  • Conversion and transfer risks
  • Exchange rate losses on amounts deposited due to a national devaluation

Commercial risks

  • Insolvency of borrower (in case of private foreign debtors)
  • Loss of receivables due to settlement in court or out of court as well as unsuccessful execution
  • Suspension of payment by the foreign debtor
  • Non-payment within one month after maturity (protracted default)


Worth knowing: On application, the scope of cover can be limited to political risks. Furthermore, the Federal Government may exclude or limit the extent of cover for certain risks when deciding on issuing a guarantee.
