WHY GET KIDNAP AND RANSOM INSURANCE?

Today’s ever expanding global economy can sometimes take you to workplaces which are recovering from war or are politically sensitive. Even safe havens are not always immune to the risk of kidnap and ransom.

By insuring against the risk of kidnapping, especially if you or your family are a high target due to your work or status, you can at least have some peace of mind knowing that you are covered for all associated costs incurred both during and after any kidnap or ransom event.

The financial impact of a crisis can be severe on any individual or family. As a result you should consider speaking with IAE Insure to understand why kidnap and ransom insurance might be suitable for you.

Is Kidnap and Ransom insurance for you?

Kidnap and Ransom insurance is designed to help protect ultra-high or mid net worth individuals and their families across the globe. Wealthy individuals can make attractive extortion and kidnap targets.

Data shows that kidnappers are becoming more organised and more sophisticated year on year due to the substantial funds available when picking the right target. Unfortunately very few kidnap victims are rescued or released without a ransom being paid out. Therefore it’s very important to have protection in place.
