A Promise Backed by Financial Strength

  • The member insurers of the Chubb Group of Insurance Companies earn the highest rating for financial strength from A.M. Best Company. Three of our member insurers are among the few insurers that have achieved A.M. Best’s highest rating for more than 75 years.
  • Chubb also earns high ratings for financial strength from Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s.

A One-stop Source for Business

Chubb offers businesses more than 170 commercial insurance products, which are innovative, comprehensive and tailored to individual customer needs. In addition, Chubb offers a wide range of accident and health insurance products and construction and commercial surety bonds.

  • Innovative Products. Chubb invented or was among the first providers of the package policy, E&O for electronics firms, R&D business income, employment practices liability, the exporters package, all-risk ocean cargo, cyber liability and other products. And unlike most other domestic insurers, we can deliver many products on a global basis through locally admitted policies and ensure consistent limits and coverage through controlled master programs. Recent product and service innovations from Chubb include two online systems, u•writer and WORLDcert. Agents and brokers use u•writer to quote, bind and issue builders risk, contractors equipment and motor truck cargo insurance policies. WORLDcert enables drug and medical device developers to quickly secure required insurance documentation for clinical trials around the globe.
  • Scalability. Many of our products, such as our Customarq Classic package, E&O and our multinational program-related coverages, are designed to grow with our customers. Larger companies willing to assume a portion of their own risk can access a variety of alternative risk transfer mechanisms through Chubb’s risk management specialists.
  • Specialized Expertise. We create tailored solutions for firms in such areas as banking and other financial services, energy production, entertainment, health care, information and network technology, law and other professional services, life sciences, marine operations, museums and cultural institutions, not-for-profit organizations, privately owned businesses, and real estate. We also specialize in such product areas as umbrella/excess, ocean cargo, multinational, environmental, directors and officers liability, and employment practices liability. Chubb is one of the largest writers of the “package policy,” which is the heart of most insurance programs. We also are the number one writer of crime and financial fidelity bonds in North America and the 5th largest insurer of U.S. construction and commercial surety bonds.
  • Assurance From Others. Our specialized expertise, products and services have resulted in endorsements from the Association of Corporate Counsel, Biotechnology Industry Association, Medical Device Manufacturers Association, Media Financial Management Association, Women Presidents’ Organization and other organizations.
