Background: *In 1882, Thomas Chubb and his son Percy opened their marine underwriting business in the seaport district of New York City. Having collected $1,000 venture capital from each of 100 prominent merchants to start their business, they focused on insuring ships and cargoes. The Chubb's were known by helping their policyholders prevent disasters before they occurred by minimising risk. By 1900, Chubb grew quickly through relationships with the insurance agents and brokers who placed their clients’ business with Chubb underwriters, and the original subscribers enjoyed a solid return on their investment in this venture.

Despite their success Chubb & Son did not value size in itself but regarded it as a measure of what had been achieved. At the Company's 75th anniversary in 1957, Hendon Chubb - who had joined his older brother Percy in the firm in 1895 - noted, "I think there is perhaps a tendency in American business to overemphasize mere size, whereas to me it should be a by-product of a job well done."

The Chubb Corporation was formed in 1967 and was listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 1984. It ranks among the top 11 publicly traded insurance organizations based on revenues in the United States.

With approximately 10,600 employees throughout North America, Europe, South America, and the Pacific Rim, Chubb serves property and casualty customers from some 120 offices in 28 countries inc Australia. Chubb works with 8,500 independent agents and brokers worldwide.
