Protect your business against criminal behavior of a dishonest employee or a dishonest third party – including collusion between the two.
Crime Insurance provides coverage for loss of money, securities, or other assets resulting from acts such as employee theft, certain types of fraud by third parties (forgery, for example), theft of property from the premises, and social engineering (impersonation fraud).
Crime insurance helps reduce organisations’ vulnerability to direct losses stemming from theft and certain types of fraud. It is an often overlooked insurance because crime-related losses are not typically covered by commercial property insurance, so it’s vital to ensure that your business is protected.

This can help free up management time at a difficult time, while speeding up the process, helping avoid similar occurrences in the future and promoting confidence as the matter is professional dealt with.
