The insurer’s suite of products in Asia includes shipment insurance, relocation insurance, multimodal freight liability insurance, and fine art products for private and corporate collectors.

Chubb has invested in its services, such as the Chubb CargoAdvantageĀ® platform, a web-based marine cargo insurance quoting and issuing system, and experienced risk managers to deliver physical and contractual risk management services to all sizes of Asian exporters and transport operators.

The product suite is designed to support various segments, including SME exporters, larger clients with risk management focus, emerging pan-Asia logistics companies, local boat owners, and Asia’s art collectors.

According to Anthony O’Brien, Regional Marine & Fine Art Manager, Asia, Chubb, the insurer’s focus area is not only its product capabilities, but also offline services to complement its investments within the digital area.
