Every year, thousands of people are kidnapped worldwide and even more receive threats, suffer from extortion, or disappear. Marsh can help protect your people, property, and reputation.

Policies and crisis management programs delivered to more than 850 multinational clients every year

Employees of multinational organisations, contractors, companies with employees who travel internationally, and high-net-worth individuals and families are particularly vulnerable to hostile incidents. For those operating in remote areas of territories that are suffering political instability and socio-economic hardships, their workforces are often targeted by organised criminal gangs, opportunistic kidnappers/extortionists, and terrorist groups.

The trauma these incidents inflict on victims and their families is extreme. Such incidents can also have devastating consequences on businesses, affecting staff morale and a company’s assets and reputation. The impact on a company’s finances can be vast as projects may be delayed or terminated.

To respond to threats against your people, brand reputation, and properties, Marsh offers a comprehensive range of services that help limit legal liabilities. We also provide specialist training, security audits, crisis management planning, evacuation planning, and kidnap prevention seminars to help reduce the likelihood and impact of an event.

Our special risks team tailors your insurance policy to respond to your specific risk profile. We analyse your existing insurance policies to determine where you have gaps in cover and recommend solutions to close them. We also work with you to develop a central crisis management plan that can help you respond to an incident more effectively.

The result: Our team enables you to understand your risk exposures and ensure the most appropriate and effective risk management and transfer strategies are in place.
