Kidnap, ransom & extortion

When your company conducts business overseas you are prepared for language barriers, exotic customs and diverse negotiating styles. What you cannot predict, however, is political upheaval and the increased danger of abduction and extortion.

Kidnapping is big business. There are an estimated 8000 kidnappings worldwide with annual global takings of $500m. With a 100% increase in kidnapping over the last six years it is becoming a fact of life in many of the world’s most dangerous territories.

Kidnap, ransom and extortion insurance from Chubb includes wide ranging cover and the knowledge that you will be advised through the situation by the best in the business. We believe no other insurer provides such comprehensive coverage.
