Political Violence & Terrorism

Our new team has significant experience in offering a wide range of tailored solutions across the War, Political Violence, Terrorism and Kidnap and Ransom spectrum worldwide.

We deliver innovative insurance, reinsurance and risk management solutions to global clients, including wholesale & retail brokers, insurance/reinsurance companies and captives.

We take pride in being able to find the right tailored solutions for clients wherever they are operating and specialise in harder to place risks in more hazardous locations across the world.

Our expert brokers deliver a high level of both understanding and personal service and are supported by dedicated and experienced claims teams.

Our approach is not generic, the team will design and structure the most suitable property & business interruption insurance/reinsurance that will best meet the needs of the individual clients’ business, sector or territory and are market leaders in complex risk placement.

To offer competitive cover we work with global highly rated insurance markets. We have a facility with a number of Lloyd’s markets that can offer multi-year policies and substantial limits.

We place risks for a broad range of organisations – across industries including finance, construction, industrial, utilities, electronics, mining, hospitals and leisure – and understand the ever-changing nature of the risks they face.
