Every Business, Regardless of Size,
is a Potential Target for Crime!

From robberies and burglaries by strangers to sophisticated fraud schemes by trusted employees, crime can financially devastate a business so it is important to have the right coverage.

What is Fidelity & Crime Insurance?
Fidelity & Crime Insurance coverage provides financial compensation to a business or organization for loss of money, securities and other property including inventory from a wide variety of criminal acts including employee theft, robbery, burglary, forgery, extortion and computer fraud. Crimes covered by Fidelity & Crime Insurance includes acts committed by employees as well as third parties.

Fidelity & Crime Insurance is often referred to as simply "fidelity insurance" or "crime insurance". While "crime insurance" is typically a catch all phrase that refers to any crime against a business or organization that results in losses, "fidelity insurance" typically refers to losses arising from employee-related fraud.

Why Does My Business Need Fidelity & Crime Insurance?
Experts point out that crime is one of the fastest-growing, most prevalent problems facing businesses today. Business surveys show that one in three companies are concerned about employee theft and over 20% of the businesses surveyed have experienced some form of employee fraud in the past three years.

Theft by employees is becoming more common and small businesses with fewer controls are as vulnerable to employee theft as large businesses. In addition, advancements in computer technology crime make the threat of loss more ominous than ever before.
