Kidnap and Ransom (K&R)

There are an estimated 20,000 kidnappings, detentions, and extortions that take place each year globally, according to NYA International, a London-based kidnap and extortion response consultancy.

The number is probably significantly higher, as it’s estimated that only about 35% of all kidnappings worldwide are reported to the authorities, with about half of these taking place in Latin America.

Although no two Kidnap and Ransom policies will be identical, given the need to tailor the cover to a wide range of situations, most include the following:
