Political Violence

Talbot AIG’s political violence product was designed to enable clients to manage the risk posed by the potential outbreak of war – international or civil. Policies are designed to offer a solution that is highly-specialised and tailored to respond to the priorities of the specific organisation.

Against the backdrop of an increasingly unpredictable global political stage, political violence is an ever-present risk. Political violence cover would be triggered in the event of an incident such as civil war or international war breaking out. This could have significant impact on an entire country’s economy and require companies operating there to weigh up significant risks both to personnel and property.


Political violence cover encapsulates all perils from war, both international and civil, through to rebellion, coup d’etat or revolution.

Talbot AIG has the capacity to provide up to $50million in cover.
