Kidnap & Ransom (K&R)

Kidnapping and ransom threats are on the rise and are becoming sneakier than ever. Fortify your preparation in the most stressful and unexpected of circumstances.

Not just for action movie franchises.

BKS Partners’ kidnap and ransom experts are dedicated to securing your financial contingency plan in the event of a kidnapping.

Whether you’re among the financially elite, a Fortune 500 executive, or one of those faces that doesn’t go unrecognized—the risk of kidnap for a hefty sum lingers in the shadows. But your bank account doesn’t have to be brimming with commas to be considered a kidnapping target. Companies with in-demand trade secrets, frequent international travelers, such as journalists, aid workers, and students are also at risk. Financial institutions, nonprofit organizations, as well as both private and public companies can benefit from this safeguarding against kidnappers and extortionists.

Kidnap and ransom policies commonly cover the cost of:

  • Ransom payments
  • Medical bills for the victim and/or their family
  • Crisis management
  • Legal fees
  • Salary replacement
  • Home relocation
  • Public relations
  • Death benefits

The most important rule about being in the kidnap and ransom insured club is never talk about being in the kidnap and ransom insured club. ​

It might sound like something to brag about at dinner parties, but don’t. Bragging that your “big deal” status warrants an insurance policy leaves you susceptible to an actual kidnapping and has the potential to void your policy. Protect your secret, protect yourself. 

Ensure your protection is as distinctive as you are.
