Kidnap & Ransom

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. 

Our Kidnap and Ransom insurance includes:

  • Reimbursement of ransoms paid
  • Reimbursement of a ransom lost in transit
  • Unlimited expenses for specialist consultants to provide specialist advice and assistance
  • Other expenses such as legal, medical & psychiatric care; salaries of the victim and any necessary replacement; travel & accommodation; rest & rehabilitation expenses; costs of communication & recording equipment; and temporary increased security measures
  • Death or disablement, or loss of limb, sight or an extremity
  • Access to a team with over 100 years’ combined experience in CBRN, kidnap and ransom, terrorism and crisis events.
  • Transaction Liability
