Samphire Risk is a leading independent Managing General Agent (MGA) focused on insuring people, businesses and not-for-profits against hostile and malicious risks. Through our expert team and our access to proprietary data and analysis, we create world-class products that insure against extortive crime, hostage-taking and kidnap; business integrity and security risk; terrorism in all its guises; travel into, and within, insecure countries and locations. We offer standalone insurance products, as well as blended solutions that can encompass these risks, all delivered in a seamless manner via leading technology.
We are proud to be an independent and expert insurer that has a truly dedicated focus on these highly complex threats and risk.
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 propel us forward at all times.
Utilising deep in-house expertise alongside verified terrorism and incident data, we offer standard form or tailor-made A-rated insurance and reinsurance. We provide innovative coverage and limits to traditional portfolios or alternative risk transfer programmes.
Our Corporate, Family and Marine Safeguard products provide essential peace of mind to organisations and people with profile or operating in complex and potentially hostile regions. Coverage includes, but is not limited to, malicious detention, extortion, hijack, unexplained disappearance, kidnap and critical evacuation. We work with specialist intermediaries and a panel of selected responders on a confidential basis.
The threat of malicious assailant incidents is increasing globally, putting lives at risk, and exposing a broad range of industries and companies to physical, financial, and reputational damage. Samphire Protect Safeguard provides cover for property damage, crisis response, business interruption and non-damage business interruption resulting from a variety of attack types. Cover can be tailored to suit the risk exposures faced across all industry verticals, including high public footfall venues, such as hospitality, events, hotels and places of organised public gathering.
Samphire Global Safeguard provides worldwide crisis response to a broad range of malicious and hostile incidents across the security, political and business integrity spectrum. The policy can be triggered by a credible suspicion or threat of an incident, including an allegation, providing support before a crisis hits. The policy provides resource, expertise and resilience at the point of need, giving the policy holder an affordable and simple mechanism to face and respond to malicious and hostile risk. For those with existing in-house resources to manage complex risks, it can sit seamlessly alongside as a force multiplier of resource and expertise. Cover can include political risks, acute duty of care risks, financial and compliance risk, information and data risks.
We support corporate and commercial entities operating in hostile or complex environments with our personal accident and emergency medical response coverage, forming part of a duty of care programme for employees and staff. We provide standard forms of personal accident or underwrite comprehensive packages, interconnected with our chosen emergency responders worldwide.
Our blended policy, Samphire Integra, provides a single integrated coverage across travel, personal accident, kidnap and ransom and medical/security evacuation risk. It includes deep financial protection and a single crisis responder across the full spectrum of emergencies, providing simplicity and broad cover under a single policy, rather than separate ones. It is suitable for all types of companies or organisations with operations overseas and can sit alongside Samphire Global Safeguard to give a truly comprehensive solution to hostile and malicious risks faced by the entity.
Whether about the safety of people or assets; whether at home or overseas; whether politically, economically or ideologically motivated; whether localised or globalised – Samphire will commit itself to the simple promise of world class insurance delivered by true experts with exceptional service
