Underwriter / Political Risk & Violence
We offer a wide range of Crisis Management insurance products providing coverage for assets worldwide. We underwrite worldwide portfolios of Terrorism and War risks aimed at indemnifying our clients from any damage to their assets caused as a result of politically-motivated acts. Products include War on Land, Terrorism, Strikes, Riots and Civil Commotion, and Threat Cover. We also provide Political Risk Products aimed at protecting cross border trade and investment from the actions of a foreign government. We cover Confiscation, Expropriation, Nationalisation and Deprivation risks, Contract Frustration, Currency Inconvertibility & Non-Transfer Risk, and Political Violence.
These are supported by our Contingency classes, which focus on areas such as Event Cancellation and Non-Appearance.
Event Cancellation – Coverage is provided for the financial consequences of cancellation, abandonment, postponement, interruption, curtailment or relocation of any type of outdoor or indoor event.
Coverage can be provided for a variety of events including sporting events, music events and theatre productions; however, our focus is on the area of conference, exhibition and trade products. Trade shows and key exhibitions, seminars and conferences form an important core of many companies’ sales strategies. The unexpected cancellation, interruption or curtailment of these events can have a serious impact on enterprises both big and small. World events such as acts of terrorism and natural catastrophes or localised events like floods, snowstorm, venue damage by fire or simply the enforced reduced attendance of delegates by transportation strikes can ruin an event.
Coverage can be provided on a worldwide basis.
Non Appearance – Coverage is provided for cancellation, abandonment, postponement, interruption, curtailment or relocation of any insured event due to the non-appearance of any key person, such as a performer, seminar speaker or artist.
Contingency insurance is an excellent and efficient way to mitigate the risks for organisers and management production companies.
