Terrorism Insurance

Think differently about terrorism insurance

More and more businesses are discovering the benefits of placing terrorism PD/BI cover, outside of traditional placement routes for terrorism insurance. For many types of property risk, considering an alternative market can pay real dividends for brokers, creating a competitive advantage, whether in securing new business or ensuring that existing clients are retained.

Stand-alone cover could give you a real competitive advantage by providing a flexible, cost-effective alternative to the traditional placement route for clients who:

  • have multi-location exposures, and so can benfit from a combined MD/BI floating first-loss sum insured, better reflecting their perception of the risk;
  • have overseas exposures, beyond the con nes of England, Scotland and Wales;
  • would like to be able to choose which locations to insure and which locations to not insure, according to their perception of the risk.

In many cases the cover offered by traditional placement routes is narrower than the terrorism exclusion in the underlying MD/BI policy, whereas the cover given by the stand-alone wording is a better fit.
