Kidnap and Extortion

Kidnap, ransom and extortion are a very real and growing threat. As many as 12 500 kidnaps are reported each sia and Asia, with the average ransom payment doubling in the last four years and some payment demands exceeding US$50 million. Whilst the most vulnerable individuals have a high net worth, many victims include those with high profiles and extensive global travel.

Family Kidnap and Extortion Insurance not only protects against financial loss but also provides the services of NYA International, leading crisis management and security consultants, to manage incidents on the policyholder's behalf.
