Your customized shield against financial risks

This coverage is especially important in the financial industry, where the potential for financial crimes is higher due to the handling of large sums of money and sensitive financial transactions.

Here are the key components of Bankers Blanket Bond insurance coverage:

  • Employee Dishonest: BBB coverage typically includes protection against losses resulting from fraudulent activities, theft, embezzlement, or other dishonest acts committed by employees of the financial institution. This is a crucial aspect of the coverage since internal fraud can be a significant risk.
  • Forgery or Alteration: The policy may also cover losses arising from the forgery or alteration of financial instruments, such as checks, drafts, or promissory notes, by employees or third parties.
  • Securities and Property: BBB insurance often extends coverage to include losses related to theft or fraud involving securities, money, and other property owned or held by the financial institution.
  • Computer Fraud: In today’s digital age, many policies include coverage for losses resulting from computer fraud, which can involve unauthorized electronic transfers or hacking attempts.
  • Transit Coverage: Some policies may include protection for losses that occur during the transportation of money or securities, such as while in transit to or from the bank.
  • Third-Party Liability: While the primary focus of BBB coverage is on employee dishonesty, it may also provide some protection against fraudulent activities committed by third parties, such as customers or vendors.
  • Extensions and Customization: Financial institutions can customize their BBB coverage to address specific risks and needs, including coverage for certain types of financial instruments, specific employees or departments, or unique situations.
