|Chubb arrives in London|
|We grow in size and offering in London, acquiring Lloyd's managing agency Ockham Worldwide and Methuen Underwriting|
Chubb Global Markets is born from our wholesale operation at Lloyd's. We also acquire Lloyd's-based Tarquin Limited.
|We acquire the global property and casualty business CIGNA Corporation for $3.5 billion, making us one of only a handful of truly international property and casualty insurance companies. With this acquisition, we also inherit the rich history of pioneering Insurance Company of North America – who wrote their first policy in 1792.|
|Regulatory approvals granted to expand our Commercial Property and Casualty Insurance offering to Poland|
