Chubb now has a practice focused on middle-market entertainment companies. The tailored and comprehensive products for commercial media producers include business interruption coverage for cast, production media and extra expenses as well as coverage for public liability and property theft, damage and breakdown. Cancellation, interruption and postponement are also part of the package.
Francis Hernandez, entertainment manager of overseas general for Chubb, says, “We are hugely excited to be launching our event cancellation and media production offerings in South Africa. Offering local policy issuance and service in South Africa for this class of business has been a long-term goal for Chubb and one I am very happy to say we can now provide.”
“We are committed to the continual development of market-leading solutions which address the evolving needs of our brokers and clients. This middle-market practice offers entertainment companies a bespoke insurance solution crafted to address the industry’s needs and affords protection against related financial exposures involved in producing media content or organising an event,” says Gary Jack, country president for Chubb in South Africa.
