Terrorism & Political Violence

The terrorism and political violence team at GAWS of London implements insurance protection that safeguards clients against challenging geopolitical risks.

Our team understands the often complex and diverse exposures clients face in what is an increasingly volatile global environment. In doing so, we deliver innovative and sustainable risk transfer solutions; building resilience in a fragile world.

While the future can seem uncertain, progressive products continue to provide insurance protection to safeguard client interests for the long-term. 

Riots, strikes and active assailants are just some of the persistently evolving threats faced by society today and, while disparate, remain real and ominous exposures to clients across the globe. The interconnectedness of the geopolitical landscape mean that clients require an integrated and proactive response to ensure they are protected.

At GAWS of London, we partner clients to products that implement innovative coverage solutions to manage the hazards of today as well as the threats of tomorrow.
