Managing International Political Risk analyzes the changing nature of threats to international investment in the "BEM's"- Big Emerging Markets- such as China, Brazil, Russia, Pakistan, India, Venezuela, Vietnam, and the Philippines. The book examines the strategies developed by investors and lenders to deal with political risk in large oil, mining, and private infrastructure projects. The book provides essential reading for international business and corporate finance classes in business schools and economics departments. It offers valuable insights and practical advice for international corporations, banks, investment funds, and insurers as they search fr methods to manage political risk in the contemporary period. Corporate strategies from Chevron, Exxon, Llotd's of London, Citicorp, and Standard & Poor's, among others, examine the tools, techniques, and stratgeies adopted by firms and financial institutions to offset or deter political risk.
Together with leading academics, they assess the costs and benefits of project finance, non-recourse lending, alternative syndication structures, securization of export receivables, bullet bonds, local financial participation, offshore escrow accounts, multilateral guarentees, and public and private political risk insurance. They navigate the cutting edge of new "deal structures" including credit derivatives, default swars, credit- linked notes, total return swaps, and two-way trades of " bite-sized" risk units.
