Chubb announced the launch of a new HealthTech industry practice in the UK. The new practice, which brings together Chubb underwriters, risk engineers and claims specialists who have deep industry knowledge, will offer bespoke insurance coverages that provide protection for both company assets and third-party liabilities. The HealthTech practice will serve all types of companies ?

from start-ups to established firms ? that provide technology for use in healthcare services, research environments and related professional services. This includes the creation, distribution, licensing, development or integration of software for these industries.

The practice builds on Chubb's extensive experience meeting the coverage needs of HealthTech companies through its Life Sciences and Technology industry practices. The new offering includes property damage, business interruption, terrorism, employers' liability and cyber, along with liability protection for claims for bodily injury, products and services, professional indemnity, intellectual property and corporate reputational injury. All covers are optional and can be tailored to suit each client.

Chubb's HealthTech Industry Practice will be overseen by Louise Joyce, Head of Industry Practices for EMEA, with Victoria D'Silva, Life Science Practice Leader for UK & Ireland, heading a bespoke underwriting team. The HealthTech offering, which will be part of the insurer's broader Life Sciences Industry Practice, joins other Chubb industry practices in the UK, including Real Estate, Technology and Media, and Climate Tech. Chubb's industry practices are underpinned by the company's global capabilities, local presence and deep industry experience.
