Hiscox ASM arranges the purchase of risk transfer against kidnap and ransom, extortion, detention, hijack.
The risk of kidnap is greatest in parts of Latin America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, but incidents happen all over the world and the list of high-risk countries is constantly changing.
Kidnappers are predominantly highly organised terrorist or criminal groups, motivated by political aims or, more commonly, pure financial gain. The impact of a kidnap can be enormous and it is essential that it be handled in the correct way.
We can arrange a comprehensive solution, encompassing risk mitigation, incident response and financial cover. It enables clients to reduce their exposure to threat and minimise the impact of an incident on their lives and business operations.
Please contact us with any queries or questions.
