Kidnap:  A WorldWide Risk

Kidnap and Ransom Insurance is now as necessary as Medical Insurance when traveling outside the United States, and perhaps within the United States as well.  Just look at the kidnapping situations happening in 2010 in the state of Arizona and Texas.   Phoenix is the second in the world for kidnapping numbers and only recently there is the ambush of David Hartley on Lake Falcon on the Mexican Border.   Pirate kidnappings on the African continent are becoming alarmingly routine for those visiting on mission trips or for tourism.  Learn more about mariner / high seas K&R at our sister site.

While not all kidnapping attempts are perpetrated by professionals, kidnapping is a Billion Dollar business around the globe.  It is often run by carefully trained teams whose mission is simply to ransom people for money.  These kidnapping rings have decision makers, a negotiation team, and an implementation team.  It is a worldwide problem, and Americans traveling outside the US (or even on the borders) are preferred targets although they may not think of themselves as targets.  

You do NOT need to be a head of state, or a rock star to be a target!

People can take precautions against kidnapping attempts, but they cannot insure that they will not be kidnapped when traveling in certain parts of the world whether for business or pleasure.  However, they can afford the security of having a retainer, a professional response team, that will be there to assist the family or company in the event of a kidnapping.  Having a professional response team brings a higher degree of probability that there will be a safe conclusion, in most cases. Your US government will only assist to a point !

Kidnap & Ransom Insurance provides an ability to meet cash ransom demands through reimbursement scenarios, and it carries with it the services of experienced response teams who work with the family and/or business for the safe return of the victim.  In addition to kidnapping, there are other forms of crime which are covered under the K&R plan – illegal detention, extortion, home invasion, carjacking, express kidnapping and numerous other means of attempting to extort money from you or the company you work for or own.  K&R policies are considered to be a "contingency" liability insurance plan.... plain and simple !  Do you have a personal liability insurance policy ?  Most probably !  Why wouldn't you have a "contingency" liability policy then ?  We can help you evaluate your needs...  contact us for a free, no obligation evaluation.

Kidnap & Ransom Insurance for those traveling abroad is a service worth serious considerationDownload the K&R application & brochure or call us at 417-882-1413 for a free & CONFIDENTIAL assessment of your needs. 

Typically, such plans will start at a minimum premium of $600 per year and go up from there on a case by case basis.  Each plan is customized.  On average the costs can be $1000 or more per year (not much more than a typical commercial liability policy many would currently have on their own corporate or personal exposures).  Many risk factors are considered when Lloyds rates the premium for your K&R policy, including length of travel, travel itinerary details, reasons for travel and policy limits requested.   Each policy has to be individually rated based on these and other factors as noted in the Application & can take up to 24 hours to return a binding quotation from our London underwriters.  We do NOT ask for financials in any form, just generalized questions on the application.
Kidnap Ransom Outcomes Chart
Kidnap Outcomes

Most kidnappings are carried out in order to obtain a ransom, and in most cases a ransom is paid.  Rescues are rare, largely because the authorities in most countries recognize that the  safety of the victim is paramount.  The average percentage of deaths following a kidnap is 9%.  In cases involving The Olive Group, less than 2% of people are killed.  Killing usually takes place at the time of abduction rather than during the negotiation.  It is estimated that over the past 6 years, kidnappings around the world have increased by 100%.  
Kidnap Demands

Demands can be huge, with more than 14 countries recording cases of $25 million or more in recent years.  Kidnappers usually settle at between 10 and 20 percent of the demand, except in the old Soviet Union where the mafia is extremely reluctant to negotiate and uses excessive violence to achieve its aims. 
Kidnap Payments

While most ransom payments are kept confidential, Olive Group is aware of some substantial sums that have been paid.  Latin America / Africa leads the list, but many of the largest settlements have been made in Europe.  There has been a noticeable increase in average ransom payments in recent years.
What are the risks ?

Corporate and personal security has improved dramatically. However, the use of kidnapping or extortion to gain access to industrial secrets, to make socio-political statements, or for monetary purposes, continues to rise.
