Lockton offers a range of products and services to meet business insurance needs around the world.
Kidnap and Ransom
Specialist, targeted cover
As one of the world’s leading independent providers of kidnap and ransom insurance, Lockton has the resources and expertise to deliver informed and effective solutions that safeguard your family, employees, or business from the fallout of kidnap, ransom and extortion.
Kidnap and ransom insurance not only covers abduction through to unlawful detention, it extends to extortion against property – covering reimbursement of ransom, business interruption, PR costs, aftercare to victims and beyond. Many of these events cross international borders, which is why Lockton’s dedicated, experienced kidnap and ransom team operates seamlessly worldwide.
Crucially, our policies provide direct, 24-hour access to highly-trained crisis consultants, who will respond immediately in the event of an incident. These consultants have extensive backgrounds in hostage negotiation from various organisations, including Special Forces and international security services.
We have access to exclusive insurers and will ensure that you are provided with the most appropriate, responsive cover at all times. Client confidentiality is an absolute priority to our team, and should you need to make a claim, our experienced consultants will work with you to resolve this as quickly and seamlessly as possible.
