Through our expert team and our exceptional technology, we aim to create world-class products that insure against extortive crime, hostage-taking and kidnap; terrorism in all its guises; travel into, and within, insecure countries and locations.

We are proud of our role within an independent business that has a truly dedicated focus on these risks.
We are also proud of our commitment always to keep people’s safety at the heart of our business through the products we provide. Our curiosity and passion to understand the risks in these specialist areas will propel us forward.

We will be constantly looking to innovate and create products that genuinely help companies and people rebuild their businesses, their lives and simply get back on their feet.
