Kidnap & Ransom Coverage

Kidnap and Ransom has become more important for expatriate and traveling employees around the world, especially those who are located in high-risk countries. More and more employees are at risk as simply working for a global company can make you a target. The Kidnap and ransom insurance that TFG Global may be able to source can be the difference between a positive outcome and a worst-case scenario. A kidnapping incident can happen to a mid level employee, senior executive or even their dependents. The financial impact of kidnapping can be substantial.

Dealing with a kidnapping or hijacking incident, negotiating with criminals or rescuing hostages can be incredibly expensive – sometimes more than the actual ransom that is eventually paid. The insurers that we can source have access to very experienced and highly trained staff who will help a company deal with an incident. A K&R policy that is sourced by TFG Global can cover all the employees and even their immediate families on a 24/7 basis and form part of a comprehensive Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) policy. The coverage can even include consultants. Having a K&R policy in place not only makes commercial sense but it also gives your company and its investors peace of mind. It is part of your firm’s duty of care.

Please keep the details, quotes and even the fact that you have K&R coverage confidential in order to avoid making your company and employees a target. Note that TFG Global may not be able to source coverage for your firm depending on the HQ address due to regulatory constraints, but we can work on a consulting basis where possible or refer you to a K&R licensed brokerage.
