Kidnap and Ransom insurance

Kidnap and Ransom insurance provides a reactive rescue service, taking action at the first indication of trouble, working to rescue hostages quickly and safely while protecting our clients from financial loss.

Our expert kidnap and ransom brokers understand that different activities and locations carry different risk. That’s why they produce independent country reports, offering trends and statistics to understand the level of risk your business faces. These are available on request for both current and prospective clients.

For most of us, kidnapping is something that only happens in movies. But unfortunately, in many parts of the world, it is a very real threat. It can be traumatic and even life-threatening for the victims, and incredibly expensive for businesses and family members who are forced to pay extortionate ransoms. 

In this situation, knowing that you are covered can help you focus on what’s really important – getting your people home safe.
