    Dear Dominik, indeed the private market is discreet because individual covers are confidential but global numbers are available, banks are big users of this market and they represent more than half of the whole activity. The market is composed by about 20 companies and 30 lloyds syndicates : At Lloyds level, numbers are now available ; I will put you in touch.

    Thank you for the comment France. We would very much welcome the opportunity to publicise the important work of the private insurance sector in this area. Unfortunately, at the current time privately insured transactions are often not fully disclosed, and therefore, unlike the ECA-backed market, it is difficult to build up an accurate picture of this area. We would be delighted to work with you, and others involved in the private market, to see if we can improve this over time.

    Dear max, I am surprised that you don't mention at all the role of the 54 private insurers market, cheaper and much more reactive than ecas. Why don't you investigate how banks did manage their risks, once they don't use ecas ? France ARNAUD - see our website www.solmondo.net

    The fact that the U.S. Congress de-authorized the US-Ex-Im Bank in June of 2015 surely figured in the equation. I would not expectHSBC to have considered this in their "sophisticated" equation. As Shaw wrote in Pygmalion, "Those silly people don't know their own silly business."
