Kidnap & Ransom Insurance

Fulfilling Your Needs

Our kidnap and ransom insurance supports businesses financially, but we also lend our expertise to help secure the best possible outcome for those involved should your client be detained or kidnapped.

Kidnapping and extortion attempts are more common than you might expect. Such crimes most often occur across Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Central and Eastern Europe and Asia, and if employees or volunteers are visiting or stationed overseas then they could be at risk. As well as helping during and after an event, our team can also advise on how to prevent these events from happening.
