Kidnapping: A real threat for some

As any organization develops operations overseas, it is important to become familiar with the unique risks associated with living and working abroad. One of those risks, which is easily overlooked, is the chance that a staff member could be kidnapped during the course of normal operations. It is estimated that over the past 6 years, kidnappings around the world have increased by 100%.

While these events can occur to anyone, organizations involved in relief and development projects may have increased risks due to the nature and location of their work. We have recently compiled a report that documents events that are far too real.

View and download a copy of our 2008 NGO Kidnapping Statistics Report.

For more information on Kidnap and Ransom insurance or other high-risk policies, please visit our website.

A New Independent Media - The Global Post

A new website and media outlet, the Global Post, is poised to offer international news coverage with the help of expatriates and others living abroad. The site was created in part by Charles Sennott, a veteran of the Boston Globe’s foreign desk.

The Global Post is staffed by seven editors — including Sennott — and seven business staffers in Boston. It, however, has a large network of global correspondents — 70 in 53 countries, to be exact. This new site will launch on January 12, 2009. The Global Post plans to work with foreign correspondents who are already living abroad and working on other projects.

A interview with Charles Sennot is available here or visit the site for today's news.

A recent survey shows 89% of expatriates in Turkey are living there for personal reasons, such as the beautiful weather and the cheaper cost of living. Only 11% of expatriates say they are living there because of their profession.

Have you ever lived in Turkey? What brought you there? Let us know in the comments.

Happy New Year!

Now that the ball has dropped and the final glass of champagne has been poured, we start to remember those promises we made to ourselves a few hours before on the little changes we plan to make to improve our lives in 2009. What resolutions did you make for this year? How long do you think you'll manage to go without breaking them?

One resolution you might consider achieving is making sure all your insurance information is up to date. Have you changed addresses? Has your credit card expired? Have you purchased something expensive, like an engagment ring or a new car? Make sure you let us know, so we can continue to give you the upmost in complete coverage and customer service in the new year. You can make address changes at on our website, or email your new details to

Have a happy and healthy 2009!
