Political Risk, Political Violence and Terrorism

In an increasingly volatile geopolitical climate, you need dependable protection for your commercial operations from underwriters who understand your precise needs.

We cover businesses worldwide against losses arising from war on land, confiscation and expropriation, political violence and terrorism. Cover includes compensation for losses affecting both fixed and movable assets, as well as business interruption and physical damage.
