Terrorism & Political Violence

Political violence poses a severe and unpredictable risk to an organization’s assets, people and its ability to trade.

Aspen offers comprehensive coverage for terrorism and political violence perils which standard property and liability insurers exclude. We protect a range of clients across the globe with a particular appetite for assureds with exposure in emerging markets.

As a client focused organisation we offer the choice of either Lloyd’s or company paper with capacity of up to US$50 million any one risk.

Whilst the team does offer coverage on standard market wordings we also have the ability to tailor our products to cater for the individual threats our clients face.

By working closely with other teams at Aspen we can offer combined products which include Cyber, K&R and Political Risks. With our flexible approach to underwriting we are able to offer policy periods in excess of 36 months.

Client and broker service are at the heart of our values and the team prides itself on its market leading response times. We understand that demand for coverage in an increasing uncertain world can require policies to be bound on the same day as submission.

Aspen also ensures that any losses are handled rapidly and proactively, thereby minimising the impact for our clients.

In addition to in-house underwriting expertise, Aspen benefits from its long-standing relationship with AKE Group, an acknowledged world leader in the field on international risk mitigation.

AKE distinguishes itself from other security services companies by taking a proactive, intelligence-led approach to assessing, monitoring, training for and protecting against risk in all its forms.
