Political Violence
& Terrorism Insurance

In our divided societies, we are more essential than ever. We cover everything from the cruellest of human actions like terrorism, to more commonplace global events, such as political violence, strikes, riots and civil commotion, war on land, malicious attack, threat, active assailant and active shooter.

Our clients range from multinationals, energy and power companies, sporting and social event management to private individuals. Our specialist, highly experienced and market-leading team underwrites both UK and international clients on an XL, direct and facultative basis. In an ever-changing geopolitical environment, we bring reassurance.

Intrinsic to our underwriting capabilities is an unrivalled claims experience which sits at the centre of our Political Violence and Terrorism Insurance and Reinsurance expertise.

Political Violence & Terrorism Team

Guy Burrows

I am a Senior Underwriter in the Political Violence and Terrorism team. We provide standalone coverage against perils such as Terrorism, Riots, Coup d’Etat and War for assets ranging from football stadiums to supermarkets. We are unique in that our line of business can differ hugely year-on-year based on the changing geopolitical landscape, which keeps our jobs fresh and challenging. Outside of work, I am fortunate enough to be a Charlton Athletic season ticket holder.

I am a Political Violence and Terrorism Underwriter, working on providing security, continuity and confidence so our clients can continue working and thriving in this ever-changing world. To do this, the team stays up-to-date with geopolitics and works together to find innovative solutions to our clients’ needs. I qualified as a ski Instructor in Canada, and love hitting the slopes as often as I can throughout winter.

As Assistant Underwriter for the Political Violence & Terrorism team, I review and underwrite accounts submitted by our broking partners, and decide if they are within our underwriting appetite. If so, I price up terms. I am a long-suffering Peterborough Utd fan, and a very keen, albeit average golfer with an 11 handicap. My golfing career peaked with a round of 73 at Royal West Norfolk, where I three-putted the 18th. I’m still kicking myself.
