Investment Guarantee

An Investment Guarantee can be used by a Finnish investor to insure foreign investments against political risks.

The coverage is normally 95%. The coverage for Investment Guarantees provided to cover bank loans is 100%. In special cases also commercial risks can be covered.

Forms of investment which can be covered by the guarantee include equity investments, shareholder loans and guarantees granted by a shareholder. Subject to certain conditions, a bank granting an investment loan can also obtain a guarantee. Investments can be made either in an existing company or in a company being set up.

The investor must be domiciled in Finland and must have adequate resources for implementing the investment. The investor can also be a foreign company controlled by a Finnish company.
