Malicious Assailant

Talbot AIG’s malicious assailant cover is designed to deliver assurance and help organisations ensure they have plans in place should an incident involving an armed individual or group occur. Our specialist team can offer tailored packages for organisations of all sizes and across all sectors.

Recent firearm and vehicle attacks in the US have brought malicious assailant events to the forefront for both business and public sector risk managers. This has led to an increased drive to mitigate against the potential losses stemming from such an incident. Our malicious assailant product provides affirmative cover designed to fill the gap left by conventional terrorism policies and provides comprehensive coverage against the vast number of ways losses can be incurred.


Talbot AIG has the capacity to provide up to $75 million in cover.
