    Employee dishonesty is a major threat to the health of both financial institutions and non-financial businesses. In their 2016 Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners reported that the typical organization loses 5% of revenues in a given year as a result of fraud.

    Commercial Crime Insurance Products


    Crime insurance (or fidelity bonds, as policies covering financial institutions are known) protects an organization from loss of money and securities, resulting from theft by its own employees.

    It also insures against third party related losses for forgery or alteration; on premises; in transit; money orders and counterfeit currency fraud; computer fraud; client property coverage; credit card coverage and expense coverage. Coverage is also available for computer crime exposures including Account Takeover funds transfer fraud.
