Led by Brian Stonehill and supported by a team of experienced underwriters in the sector, we offer global coverage across multiple platforms for political violence risks. Policy wordings range from standard market terrorism and sabotage/political violence versions to property ‘follow forms’.

The team also has the flexibility to cater for bespoke products to suit specific client requirements.
