Piracy is a criminal act, which not only affects the victims but also has severe financial repercussions.

Separate Kidnap & Ransom insurance for piracy ensures clients can bridge gaps in traditional marine insurances. Without it, the risk of incurring significant costs as a result of such an incident, with no recourse, is a key consideration.

Staple Hall provides clients with access to robust and comprehensive Kidnap & Ransom cover. Our significant marine capabilities mean that we are also able to draw from the experience and expertise of our specialist teams and breadth of products and classes to offer clients fully integrated insurance and risk management advisory services.
