How can we help

Kidnap & Ransom, or K&R, insurance was pioneered in the Lloyd's market. At its core is a critical service - the ability to negotiate a safe and successful outcome to a kidnapping, wherever it may occur and whoever may be responsible. 

Beazley's K&R insurance clients benefit from the expertise and worldwide connections of Northcott Global Solutions and Crux Risk, specialist firms with many years of experience negotiating favourable outcomes to K&R and extortion attempts. 

Who we can help

  • Corporates – Most frequently covers all directors, officers and employees. All family members of these covered persons are automatically included.​ 
  • Families – Cover for private individuals and their named family members.
