Piracy, off the Horn of Africa, in the Straits of Malacca (South East Asia) or the Gulf of Guinea (West Africa) dramatically impacts global shipping and international trade. We offer vessel owners and operators the opportunity to mitigate against the financial threat posed by this violent and ever-evolving risk.
