Who we are
Founded in Geneva in 2003, IRIA is a Swiss insurance broker specializing in political risk and credit insurance. In 2020, following a long-standing relationship, we became part of Hyperion Insurance Group’s specialty lines broker, RKH Specialty, which enables us to expand our range of products and deliver solutions on a global scale whilst still operating independently.
Our global reach and market power
Headquartered in Geneva, we work closely with our RKH colleagues in London, Miami, Singapore, Dubai, Hong Kong, Luxembourg and Bermuda to bring clients the best of the world’s markets.
As political risk and credit specialists, we have a particularly strong connection to Lloyd’s and the London market. Last year we placed $32 million of premium on behalf of clients.
What we do
We arrange cover for your transactions and assets against credit and political risks. By seeking out insurance capacity across global markets, IRIA is able to bring you the best possible combination of rates, coverage and insurers’ financial strength.
How we stand out
More than a broker, IRIA is a source of expertise concerning international trade risks. IRIA’s brokers are highly proficient commodity finance professionals with real-life experience in commodity trading, structured commodity banking and emerging-market business.
At IRIA, our business model is centred around expertise – not size or diversification. As a specialized firm, our service is backed by the most qualified professionals. We deal with sophisticated clients in confidential high-risk transactions that demand rapid response and meticulous coverage management.
