Terrorism Risk Insurance

The financial losses and claims on companies following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, led the United States to examine the role of terrorism risk insurance. RAND has researched and advised policymakers about terrorism risk management in general and, in particular, the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA), a U.S. law designed to limit insurers’ financial losses following acts of terrorism, which has been extended twice and is now due to expire in 2014.
