Chartis, the property-casualty and general insurance firm of AIG, has said that it will enter into a contractual agreement with UK's specialist kidnap and extortion response consultancy, NYA International.
Beginning 1 December 2011, NYA will be responsible for providing kidnap, extortion, malicious product tampering and maritime piracy consultancy services to the Chartis insurers’ crisis management policyholders.
