’We want to better enable businesses operating in this sector,’ says head
Chubb has launched a new media insurance product for its clients across the UK, a statement released yesterday (14 November 2023) said.
The new proposition offers bespoke cover for media liability, cyber, property, terrorism, casualty and legal expenses to clients, who will also get access to several value-added services.
This includes a free legal advice helpline staffed by senior media lawyers.
The product will be targeted at middle market and multinational media companies and consultants operating in advertising, graphic design, public relations, brand development and publishing, including newspapers, magazines, radio and television.
To support the launch, Chubb has rebranded its existing UK technology arm as the Technology and Media Practice to reflect its new focus.
The division will be overseen by Louise Joyce, head of industry practices for EMEA, alongside Alex Smith, technology and media industry practice leader.
Chubb said its new media proposition would enhance the arm with specialist underwriters and claims experts.
Joyce added: “The launch of our new media product and the rebranding of our Technology and Media Practice demonstrates our commitment to this fast-growing sector.
“Chubb has a successful track-record of working with customers within the media industry and has developed a comprehensive understanding of their needs.
“As this industry continues to grow and becomes increasingly specialised, we want to better enable businesses operating in this sector to withstand some of the many and varied challenges they may face.”
