Security and people risks specialists 

Traditionally known as K&R policies, they cover far more than kidnap incidents alone. In fact, many organisations refer to them as ‘special risk’ policies due to the extensive breadth of security and people risk perils they cover.

We can arrange policies that include any of the following perils: 

  • Assault and hostage crisis
  • Emergency political evacuation
    and relocation
  • Extortion - cyber, property damage, 
    bodily injury, product and trade secret
  • Political detention
  • Hijack
  • Disappearance
  • Kidnap (including express)
  • Piracy
  • Threat
