Kidnap and Ransom Coverage

Kidnap and Ransom Coverage

In today’s global economy, it’s a very real threat: the possibility of kidnap, extortion or illegal detention. Each year, there are about 15,000 such incidents, and they generate about half a billion dollars in ransoms paid to criminals and their causes.

If your executives and employees travel internationally (or even within your own borders), they may be at risk. And if an event occurs, the costs to your organization could be significant — even if no ransom is paid.

To ensure that your executives, key people or their loved ones are safely returned, a strategic kidnap and ransom insurance solution is essential.

We have access to both land and marine kidnap and ransom coverages.
