DEFINITION of 'Business Crime Insurance'

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Business Crime Insurance'

Business owners should keep in mind that most commercial property policies do not cover crime-related losses. Companies can invest in business crime insurance either as part of a larger insurance package (typically known as special multiperil insurance or a commercial package policy), or they can purchase separate, standalone policies to address and provide coverage for specific types of crime.
