Lockton Launches Corporate Terrorism Product with London Markets

September 20, 2016

Insurance broker Lockton, in conjunction with London Market insurers Hiscox, Beazley, Talbot and XL Catlin, have launched a new product – Terrorism Crisis Solutions (TCS) – designed to offer corporate clients a combined terrorism cover that encompasses a wide range of threats.

The new policy combines the underwriting teams from the London Market’s terrorism insurers into one modular product.

TCS allows them to choose from a range of covers, including: sabotage and terrorism for both property damage and liability; financial protection when a client is impacted by an insured event; threat of a malicious act, nuclear, chemical, biological, and radiological malicious acts; active assailant, active shooter, workplace violence and stalking threat as well as riots, strikes and civil commotion.

“Businesses are facing not only a growing terrorist threat but one that is rapidly changing in nature. We have seen recent attacks across Belgium and France as well as in the US, which have brought home how terrorists are adapting their methods to inflict maximum casualties, fear and disruption,” said Adam Watson, a Lockton partner and Head of North American Property & Terrorism. “Recognizing the uncertainties and vulnerabilities that this brings to businesses around the world, we have brought together a panel of the London Market’s foremost terrorism insurers to develop a new comprehensive modular terrorism product. Terrorism Crisis Solutions enables clients to build a terrorism policy that can be customized to meet their precise needs.”
