Some of the dangers you might encounter in Mali

Whilst the Malian government is encouraging inward investment in targeted areas like agriculture, infrastructure and modern IT technologies, there is no doubt that the unstable security situation is a significant issue to consider.

In the Northern provinces, terrorism, banditry and kidnapping are a real threat, particularly for foreign nationals. Some hostages have been held for months; others have been killed. Insurgents have also targeted foreign nationals in restaurants and hotels in the capital Bamako.

Medical facilities in Mali are very limited. Cholera and malaria are common, and meningitis outbreaks occur from the end of February to mid-April. 

We can help you to protect your people with robust personal accident and medical insurance with evacuation, which will cover them for terrorism and political risk, as well as road traffic accidents or illness.

We can also help you to meet any contractual insurance requirements and protect your property, vehicles or special equipment. We can also create tailored policies to protect your business liabilities, including political risk to cover the possibility of a changing political climate preventing you from accessing your assets or completing contracts.
