Terrorism & Political Violence

An act of terrorism or political violence can have a huge impact on an organization, whether it happens at home or overseas. We’ll help to make sure your risks are fully covered.


We live in unsettled global times. Acts of Political Violence, Terrorism and War can expose firms operating both in the US and across multiple territories to increasing complex risk.

Our insurance is specifically designed to reduce that volatility. A single policy provides you with global coverage and clear definitions, so you have contract certainty that all your risks are covered. This includes emerging risks that may be hard to place, including nuclear, chemical, radiological and biological risks. And with no minimum premium, we can provide peace of mind to everyone from multinational companies to single location property owners.
