Bankers Blanket Bond

Bankers Blanket Bond (BBB), also known as a blanket fidelity bond, is an insurance policy that covers a bank for risks related to fraud and dishonesty.  Howden's financial risk consultants provide risk management support based on claims trends and insights, helping you stay one step ahead of financial crime. 

Bankers Blanket Bond is a highly tailorable risk management solution, intended to protect against clearly defined definitions of financial loss.  

It’s useful in scenarios where a criminal element is working against the interests of the bank. For example, check fraud or bank robbery. Employee dishonesty that works in the bank’s favour, e.g. to make an institution look more profitable, is one example of fraud that wouldn’t be covered.

We will help you design a policy with the precise blend of insuring clauses to suit your needs.

Policy options

a) Full or partial coverage

Choose whether you want to cover 100% of your risk or just certain elements of it.

b) Variable Limit of Liability

Tailor your policy to suit your requirements, with no unnecessary extras.

c) Variable deductible

Select the level of your deductible, to match your risk appetite.
