International political risk management : looking to the future by Theodore H Moran( Book )

19 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

International Political Risk Management: Looking to the Future is the third in a series of volumes based on the MIGA-Georgetown University Symposium in International Political Risk Management. Like its predecessors, this volume offers expert assessments of needs, trends, and challenges in the international political risk insurance industry. These assessments come from a dozen senior practitioners from the investor, financial, insurance, broker, and analytical communities. The volume leads off by examining the lessons that can be learned from recent investment losses, insurance claims, and arbitrations. It then turns to consider what the future may hold for coverage of project finance projects in emerging markets as well as recent public-private collaboration trends in the issuance of political risk insurance. It concludes by reconsidering both old and new political risk insurance products and innovations that seek to expand the tools that international investors can utilize to mitigate political risk abroad

Section I of this report describes in broad terms Miga's development mandate as required by the Agency's Convention and operational Regulations, and details its progress to enhance its contribution to development. It characterizes Miga's growth over the last ten years in terms of: membership; cumulative foreign direct investment facilitated in developing member coutnries; total number of guarantees issued; and the cumulative amount of guarantees issued. This section also illustrates the increasing regional and sectoral diversification of Miga's portfolio, and presents aggregate statistics about its development effectiveness. Section II provides an overview of the evolution of Miga's evaluation program and describes its project evaluation methodology and process. Section III verifies quantitative aggregated information about projects' dorect economic effects by comparing anticipated development data with actual results retrieved by Miga staff or independent consultants during the evaluation exercise. Subsequently, the same section supplies evidence of the developmental impacts of Miga-supported projects following a multidimensional approach that distinguishes between different types of developmental effects. Section IV presents three in-depth case studies; a fertilizer plant in Bangladesh, a denim facility in Pakistan, and a residential mortgage program in Argentina. These case studies serve as a basis to test the evaluation framework and to identify further information needs. Finally, the Appendix discusses the special case of the developmental impacts of financial sector investments and rationale for the support Miga provides to this type of investment

Investment Insurance and Development Impact Evaluating MIGA's Experience by Gerald T West( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The document is an assessment of the impacts of a large sample of the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) assisted investments, reflecting to various degrees, the actual impacts in the twenty seven countries it operated. However, these differences should not mask the reality that, relative to the investment-specific anticipated impacts, these investments generally met, or exceeded the original anticipated impacts. For regardless of some difficulties, and failures, the broad positive impact of these projects is evident. The present analysis both encompasses, and extends the analysis of 1998, and, represents a comprehensive evaluation of the development impacts of foreign direct investments, ever undertaken by an investment insurer, offering a research that explores the nexus between private investment, and development across multiple dimensions, and time. A description of MIGA's development mandate is offered, as described in the Agency's Convention and Operational Regulations, and a brief overview of MIGA's growth since inception is provided, highlighting the increasing regional, and sectoral diversification of its portfolio. A comparison of anticipated, vs. actual benefits for some quantitative indicators is provided, as well as an analysis of impacts within a multidimensional framework. Two case studies are presented, and the lessons learned lay the foundation for future work
