Claims

Claims are the acid test of any insurance programme and this is even more important for a multinational programme.

Claims – particularly if overseas – can be very complex and involve multiple parties. Our global claims handlers have the knowledge and expertise to manage the process ensuring  clients receive an effective, efficient and fair resolution.

Why implement a multinational programme?

  • Ability to define and implement the level of risk that should be retained and insured by each overseas subsidiary
  • Benefit of the managed network of one global insurer to put consistent insurance coverage in place across the client’s global operations
  • the global insurer will work to common standards and can also provide a local service, e.g. claims handling and the provision of certificates.
  • concern about operating compliantly in all territories - Chubb has knowledge and expertise in the regulatory and legal arenas of global insurance
