What we do
Active assailant

Active assailant attacks are a real and present threat with new incidents being reported with growing frequency. We are at the forefront of how the insurance market can support businesses and organisations with this risk.

Given their often random nature, organisations cannot predict if and when they might be directly or indirectly affected by an attack. They can, however, take steps to protect their businesses and their people if the worst was to happen. 

Utilising our combined knowledge and experience of these types of developing risks alongside our long-standing relationships and access to the Lloyd’s, London and international markets, we offer a comprehensive and multi-pronged approach to this risk which allows clients to meet their specific risk advisory and risk transfer needs.

Who we help

Working both directly with insureds and through intermediaries, we aim to take the confusion and uncertainty away, providing all elements from a single source.
