This duty of care requires more than an insurance policy. 

In today’s globalized world, companies and individuals face security risks wherever they operate or live. Threats to personal and corporate security can come from anywhere.


When they do, they are sudden and unpredictable and need a swift, organized and expert response. 

We help clients design a Kidnap and Ransom insurance policy that offers a range of cover options tailored to your needs, combined with expert risk management and crisis response to help you manage any situation and recover quickly.


In addition to peace of mind that all your financial costs will be covered, you will have 24/7 access to advice and consultancy from world leading security experts. 

We’ll also contribute part of your premium towards training, advice and planning so you can prepare for and prevent incidents from happening.
