PRI AFTER SEPT. 11 AND THE ARGENTINE CRISIS: A PUBLIC PROVIDER’S PERSPECTIVE 21 PRI since the Argentine Crisis As of the end of 2002, the private market has had no appetite for new business in Argentina. Investors are concentrating on renewing existing portfolios, as they expect business in Argentina to get even tougher in 2003. ECAs are also taking a more cautious stance in Argentina, and are not as forthcoming in their provision of PRI cover for investments into the country. Prior to September 11 and the Argentine crisis, Lloyd’s accounted for approximately two-thirds of the PRI market capacity, and the remainder was split among public and private providers worldwide.

Trade risks. There is increased demand for short-term contract frustration on nondelivery and nonpayment, particularly for oil, cotton, tobacco, and other primary crops. 3. Country risk protection. Long-term buyers of country risk protection want to insure against erosion of their balance sheets, especially for projects in the leisure industry, manufacturing, and utilities. The major sector to suffer a backlash from underwriters is the power sector. Underwriters are of the opinion that potential buyers of PRI regard the insurance as a back-up to sovereign guarantees on long-term power contracts, and this use of political risk policies is unsustainable, given the loss record in this sector.

Lloyd’s now only accounts for one-third of the market, and ECAs and other private providers hold the remainder. However, ECAs have not witnessed any overall increase in demand for PRI cover since September 11. Claims and Near Claims Experience ECGD has not experienced any PRI claims or near claims since September 11 or the Argentine crisis for investments insured under its Overseas Investment Insurance (OII) scheme. Apart from OPIC, which has received many notices of potential claims in Argentina, not all of which will result in actual claims, other ECAs have reported no claims or near claims under their PRI schemes arising out of September 11 or following the crisis in Argentina.
