Kidnap & Ransom Insurance Market Development in Latin America and Africa Examined by Timetric in Its New Report Available at MarketPublishers.com

16 Oct 2017 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Kidnapping is viewed as a rapidly-growing threat for wealthy and noteworthy segments of society, as it is a source of large amounts of money with relatively low risks. The overall rate of kidnapping has increased considerably worldwide, with an average 2 people abducted every hour and appr. USD 1.5 billion spent on ransom every year.

During January, 2015 – September, 2016, the African region accounted for over 60% of kidnappings of foreigners worldwide, with Libya and Nigeria making the largest contribution.

To mitigate the threat of kidnapping and abductions, and also secure financial sums, kidnapping and ransom insurance have emerged as an effective, if not yet fully efficient, solution.
