Chubb Launches a New and Improved Package Product for Commercial Clients

Chubb | May 24, 2021

Chubb has launched a new insurance product, Benchmarq Package, for the lower middle market segment, setting the standard for package plans based on broader, more scalable coverage and performance. Benchmarq provides a more comprehensive base coverage offering of both property and liability, resulting in insurance protection that is more robust than typical industry package policies. Although Benchmarq's base product is best suited to smaller or less complex package risks, coverage can be scaled up by higher limits and additional endorsements to build completely customized solutions for clients' unique and evolving needs in an underserved middle market space. "Benchmarq addresses a gap in the lower middle market that isn't traditionally filled by a standard plan or company owners insurance scheme," said Ben Rockwell, Division President, Chubb Middle Market. "Chubb's latest modernized package broadens our presence in the middle market and allows us to include the esteemed insurance programs and offerings for which we've been popular to an ever wider range of customers, at a time when exposures in this space begin to emerge." We assume that the scalability, quicker quoting, and simplified product architecture would help agents and brokers—all backed by Chubb's advanced underwriting experience, excellent risk engineering, and claims scalability. Benchmarq's key product features provide comprehensive and flexible property and general liability coverages that protect customers against the risks they are most likely to face within the sectors in which they specialize, which include education, food, manufacturing, professional services, real estate, retail, technology, wholesale, and wineries, with plans to expand into additional industries. Benchmarq is currently accessible via field underwriters in 29 states, with more to follow in the coming months. Benchmarq will be available in the Fall of 2021 on Chubb's award-winning digital platform, the Chubb Marketplace. The Chubb Marketplace is intended to modernize the placement of insurance policies.
