Kidnap & ransom
Keep your people safe and have peace of mind
Every year there are more than 40,000 kidnappings globally. Over 40% of these kidnappings are of professionals and business personnel or their dependants.
Kidnappings can occur in any region of the world, but particularly in hot-spots such as war zones and crisis zones and areas of political or social unrest. Most kidnappings occur to obtain a ransom and few victims are rescued or released safely without ransoms being paid. Unfortunately you cannot rely on government support and they certainly won’t pay any ransom demand for you.
As an employer you have a duty of care to protect your staff overseas. Our consultants can work with you to find the most appropriate solution to help you meet that duty.
