Crisis support for your business and your employees.
Business travel is becoming more frequent, and while most is incident-free, kidnap, ransom, extortion, and detention are unfortunately an increasing threat to organisations and individuals around the world. AIG offers businesses tailor-made solutions to address these threats, giving them confidence to conduct their business safe in the knowledge that their exposure to these threats is reduced and there is expert assistance available in the event of a crisis.
In today’s global marketplace, businesses often need to operate overseas in order to compete effectively. The security situation in many countries can quickly deteriorate, however, putting both business operations and company executives and their dependents at risk. Incidents are traumatic for those involved, and companies may face huge losses from ransom payments, business interruption, litigation, adverse publicity, and long-term damage to reputation.
In the event of a crisis, the organisations that cope most effectively are those with thorough, tried and tested response plans and procedures, and access to professional and experienced advisors. This can make the difference between a rapid, controlled recovery or, in extreme cases, a business failing to recover at all.
Kidnap and Ransom insurance protects organisations against the financial loss that can arise when an employee is seized or detained for ransom or faces extortion. Backed by unparalleled consultancy, medical, and emergency travel assistance services, we offer organisations the experience and resources typically not provided in-house to manage and resolve these incidents successfully.
