Chubb has launched an insurance coverage aimed at bridging gaps in traditional terrorism business interruption policies.
Chubb’s Non Damage Terrorism Solutions is a single policy offering non damage business interruption, plus employee and customer care assistance as a result of a terrorism loss. In addition, this policy also provides event cancellation coverage following an act or threat of terrorism and this aspect includes an extension for war.
Conventional terrorism policies typically provide cover for physical damage only and resultant business interruption. Chubb’s Non Damage Terrorism Solutions has been developed in response to client feedback and is designed to meet the needs of businesses which find their ability to trade impacted as a result of a terrorist incident, even though there is no physical damage. For example, if the immediate area around their premises is made inaccessible for security reasons.
Chubb’s Non Damage Terrorism Solutions is available to businesses of all sizes and in most locations around the world. The policy is particularly aimed at retailers, hotels, financial institutions, entertainment and events sector, transport and infrastructure.
According to Piers Gregory, head of Terrorism and Political Violence, Chubb, the product not only covers the insured’s property but also the surrounding area which might prevent employee or customer access.
Chubb provides commercial and personal property and casualty insurance, personal accident and supplemental health insurance, reinsurance and life insurance around the world.
