ACE Launches Global Primary Casualty Unit for U.S. and Canadian Multinational Companies
‘ACE Risk Management Global Casualty’ delivers single source solution for U.S. and Canadian customers with international exposures to access global primary casualty insurance products

PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ACE today launched a new division that consolidates its U.S. and global casualty offerings to create ACE Risk Management® Global Casualty. The division will provide more efficient underwriting and servicing for large multinational companies, as well as smaller but growing companies that may be increasing their operations in additional jurisdictions around the world.

ACE Risk Management Global Casualty combines and leverages the strengths of two established and proven divisions within ACE USA — ACE Risk Management and ACE Foreign Casualty — to provide a single source for specialized products and improved alignment among underwriting, claims, actuarial, legal, credit and other services that support domestic and global casualty products. Whether clients have executives traveling overseas once a year or operations in 150 countries, ACE Risk Management Global Casualty provides the products they need.

Matt Merna will lead this expanded team of professionals as Division President of ACE Risk Management Global Casualty. Previously, Mr. Merna served as Division President of ACE Risk Management. Mr. Merna will continue to report to Chris Maleno, Division President of ACE USA.

“As companies of all sizes continue to grow and expand their operations globally, the foreign exposures and risks they face have never been greater or more difficult,” said Mr. Maleno. “We are positioned to provide a robust suite of programs that are innovative and well-aligned with our customers’ needs, such as our distinctive master general liability policy that insures domestic and global exposures to reduce coverage lapses and streamline service delivery.”

ACE Risk Management clients and ACE Foreign Casualty clients will continue to receive superior service and access to the full suite of products and services they have come to trust. In addition, in the U.S. and Canada, ACE Risk Management Global Casualty clients will now be able to further customize their coverages and access several of ACE’s effective technology solutions to manage their insurance program across their organization and the geographies within which they operate. Products include:

  • ACE Advantage® – a specialized international package of insurance for U.S.-based companies, non-profit organizations and educational institutions that have employees or volunteer workers who travel, work or sell products overseas, or that have locations outside the U.S.
  • ACE Atlas CMPSM – customized insurance and risk management solutions for U.S.-based corporations and multinationals with large or complex operations and exposures outside the U.S. Solutions include U.S. Controlled Master Program policy with admitted local policy placement(s), flexible program structures, and tailored risk transfer options.
