Hub International has introduced a new offering, Violent Acts Liability Insurance, to aid businesses in the US and Canada to move ahead after a tragic incident.

This product is intended at closing the gaps in umbrella and general liability policies, thereby protecting the safety, security and resilience of an enterprise, the company said.

The Violent Acts Liability Insurance will address the liability risks caused by malicious acts of violence on the functioning of a company.

This offering is underwritten by Lloyd’s of London and ensures limits of up to $25m, with an option for claiming additional sum based on the requirements.

Conventional excess casualty insurance only offers protection against bodily injury and property damage claims.

However, the new product provides enhanced coverage for the third-party liability arising from violent acts that affect the company.
