AXA XL Insurance today announced that it has launched a suite of crisis management solutions in France. These solutions, underwritten locally, are designed to help French companies operating abroad prevent, prepare for and respond to crisis situations, and help protect their people, assets and finances.

The suite includes war, terrorism and political violence insurance solutions, as well as security risks insurance solutions, alongside a number of services that provide emergency security and disaster evacuation support.

Julien Guénot, Country leader, France, AXA XL, commented: “The nature of terrorism and security risks is changing and companies are compelled to adapt their risk management strategies to ensure their employees and activities are protected, across the world. AXA XL is a leader in crisis management and I am delighted that we are now able to support our French clients from Paris, with this specialised offering.”

The offering is underpinned by an exclusive partnership with global consultancy firm S-RM that offers tailored risk assessment and security planning as well as crisis management services in the event of an incident.

Stephen Ashwell, Chief Underwriting Officer, Crisis Management & Special Risks, AXA XL, said: “In today’s global business environment, French companies face evolving threats overseas. They not only have to work with insurers that have a deep expertise in security risks, but also with crisis management experts, such as our partner S-RM, that are able to help them prepare ahead of a crisis, and to support them should one occur, to mitigate its impact.”
