A Safeguard Against the Global Threat of Kidnapping

Worldwide, the threat of kidnapping is real. In recent years, kidnapping and ransom schemes have impacted missionaries, schools, journalists and manufacturing and infrastructure operations in many regions, including Africa, South America, Mexico, Haiti, the Middle East and Eastern Europe.

Ransom demands can be for millions of dollars. However, the costs are far beyond financial. Kidnappers may refuse to negotiate and use excessive violence to achieve their aims. With our program, your insureds will have a partner ready to manage negotiations, liaise with law enforcement agencies, arrange for delivery of ransom funds and ensure the safe return of the employee.

Our kidnap, ransom and extortion insurance program provides proactive monitoring through pre-trip risk assessments, executive protection and secure journey management, security assistance and evacuations, medical emergency plans and travel tracking and situational awareness.
