IT Contractor Needs High-Risk Life Insurance for Afghanistan
16 October 2012
Bellwood Prestbury have helped a British IT contractor to secure a high-risk life insurance policy which will provide the valuable insurance he needs for the duration of his stay in Afghanistan.
Many countries, such as Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia, are often deemed too “high-risk” by the FCO; mainstream insurers therefore refuse to offer cover which includes passive war and terrorism.
The contractor required high-risk life insurance to clear his outstanding mortgage balance should the worst happen. In addition, a further sum was purchased to ensure his family was looked after financially.
The contractor contacted Bellwood Prestbury and immediately their team of experts knew they could help. As a Lloyd’s Coverholder, Bellwood Prestbury were able to arrange the IT contractor’s high-risk life insurance, which is underwritten by Lloyd’s of London.
Even if you perform a high-risk occupation and your work takes you to remote or dangerous places, cover is available. Bellwood Prestbury specialise in providing insurance solutions to individuals and companies working in high-risk occupations and/or remote locations, from IT consultants to land-based armed private security contractors.
