The Chubb Corp.
The Chubb Corp. is one of the largest U.S. insurance holding companies, offering property and casualty insurance to individuals and businesses. The publicly traded company marked its 125 year anniversary in 2007.
Chubb Corp. proper is best known for insuring top executives and high-net-worth individuals. Yacht insurance is among one of its top offerings.
When American International Group Inc. began facing massive challenges in the summer of 2008, analysts thought Chubb would benefit but this prediction is yet to bear out in the ailing economy: Almost as soon as it was made, Chubb's stock took a tumble.
The Chubb Corp. takes diversity seriously and has pocketed a host of awards for its efforts to become a workplace that's welcoming to all employees, especially women and minorities. Chief among these initiatives are its employee resource groups and its hiring of a chief diversity officer. Chubb also directly equates its recent financial successes and growth with tangible changes made in its diversity policies.
