The report opines that kidnapping and ransom have remained largely unchecked in Latin America, owing to weak law enforcement; however, with the passage of time, this malaise has also impacted other regions, with Africa among the most affected. Many travel groups are recommending people to take kidnap and ransom insurance if they are travelling to sensitive areas in Latin America and Africa.

Kidnap and ransom insurance, in addition to offering a cover for the situation when a person is held on ransom, also offers a cover for extortion. These insurance policies also help an organization get in touch with a consultancy whose primary aim is to work together with the organization to find the safest and quickest way for release.

According to the report, kidnapping and ransom insurance is gaining awareness among people in developing regions. However, the increasing level of awareness has not translated into revenues, as ambiguity over standard operating procedures has remained a key impediment. The percentage of cases in which kidnap and ransom insurance was paid successfully is also on the lower side, due to which many corporates hesitate to invest in getting these insurance.
