Kidnap & Ransom Risk

20 million USD limit per event.

Protect yourself, your company or your family from prevalent extortion and illegal detention. You do not have to be a celebrity or a billionaire to be targeted for kidnapping and ransom. Anyone, anywhere can be at risk, especially in countries with wealth disparity, which is most of them. For many events, such as “express kidnapping” all that is required of you is an ATM card. There are at least 20,000 reported cases of kidnapping around the world, and it is believed that less than 20% of cases are reported.

Are you at risk?

Industry– Does your business, brand, visibility make you a target?

Travel- Do you or your employees travel overseas and around the globe?
