Crime and Employee Infidelity

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.

Who is this for?

Businesses of all sizes from SMEs (who may lack the security and resources of larger firms) to major financial institutions.

Help when it matters most


Safeguarding reputations

We protect companies because we know that the financial loss is not the only impact of fraud. Real protection understands that what’s also required may be to help retain disappointed customers and revive damaged brands and employee morale.

Crime and the global economy

Thanks to the internet, criminals can attack from anywhere in the world, making them harder to track down. They are good at keeping a step ahead of system security measures and software. Insurance provides financial support without the need to bring thieves to justice.

Staff and inside jobs

It can be hard to accept that your own staff might be stealing from you. Unfortunately, the truth is that it may be the most trusted and senior staff who have the knowledge to skirt round security and set up well-concealed fraud systems.

Investigation expertise

Our cover includes access to investigative experts to establish the size of the loss and how it was done. 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.
