What we offer

Our expert team underwrites Financial Fidelity Bonds for financial institutions and offers Commercial Crime for commercial companies. 

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. 

Our Commercial Crime policy includes an insuring agreement for fraudulent instruction coverage to address losses from the transfer of funds as a result of fraudulent instructions from a person purporting to be a vendor, client or authorized employee, otherwise known as social engineering losses. Coverage is provided subject to an out-of-band authentication, which can be removed for insureds with documented controls and response plans, subject to an additional premium

Limits up to US $25,000,000

The Beazley Difference

BEING BOLD

Freedom lies in being bold. We dare to be different and seek bold possibilities to create more innovative, fair and satisfying outcomes for our clients, brokers and employees. From insuring the highest building in the world, to the first commercial lunar vehicle to operate on the moon - we boldly go where others won’t.

STRIVING FOR BETTER

Good is a start, but we go all-out for better.  A driven community of individuals relentlessly push the needle and creating value. From launching the market’s first dedicated ESG syndicate to the establishment of our business unit focusing on designing digital insurance solutions, we pride ourselves on always going above and beyond.  Simply put, at  Beazley we go to 11.  

DOING THE RIGHT THING

Acting with integrity in a straightforward, decent way is instinctive. Open and honest with others, we show respect and empathy however challenging the situation – demonstrated by our multi-award winning claims team.  Doing the right thing makes for a fair-minded, rewarding environment and makes work and life better for all.

Examples or Scenarios

“Computer crime” is not what it used to be. For decades, commercial crime insurance policies were written contemplating the threat of a hacker cracking into a computer network to score an unauthorized transfer of funds - the cyber equivalent of a thief in the night. Today, one of the most prevalent threats is more direct: Thieves can even come right to the “front door,” or masquerade online as a senior executive, vendor or other trusted associate of a company, tricking an employee into handing over company assets.
