Allied World Assurance Company Holdings, AG, through its subsidiaries, provides property and casualty insurance and reinsurance solutions in Bermuda, Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Labuan, Switzerland, and Singapore. The company writes direct insurance in the United States primarily through four subsidiaries, Allied World Assurance Company (U.S.) Inc. and Allied World National Assurance Company, and Darwin National Assurance Company and Darwin Select Insurance Company. Segments The company operates through three segments: U.S. Insurance, International Insurance, and Reinsurance. U.S. INSURANCE The U.S. Insurance segment includes its direct insurance operations in the United States and a Canada branch office in Toronto that opened in 2013. Within this segment, the company provides a diverse range of specialty liability products, with a particular emphasis on coverages for healthcare and professional liability risks. Additionally, the company offers a selection of direct general casualty insurance and general property insurance products. Products and Customer Base: The company’s casualty operations in the United States and Canada focus on insuring specialty liability risks, such as professional liability, environmental liability, product liability, healthcare liability, and commercial general liability risks. Professional liability products include policies covering directors and officers, employment practices and fiduciary liability insurance. The company also offers errors and omissions liability policies designed for various service providers, including law firms, technology companies, insurance companies, insurance agents and brokers, and municipalities. In addition, the company provides both primary and excess liability and other casualty coverages to the healthcare industry, including hospitals and hospital systems, managed care organizations, accountable care organizations and other medical service providers. With respect to general casualty products, the company provides both primary and excess capacity, and its focus is on complex liability risks in various industries including construction, real estate, public entities, retailers, manufacturing, transportation, and finance and insurance services. The company also offers comprehensive insurance to contractors and their employees working outside of the United States on contracts for agencies of the U.S. government or foreign operations of U.S. companies. The company’s U.S. property insurance operations provide direct coverage of physical property and business interruption coverage for commercial property risks. During 2011, the company also commenced writing inland marine business. The company writes solely commercial coverages and concentrates on primary risk layers of insurance (as opposed to excess layers), offering meaningful but limited capacity in these layers. The company offers general property products from its underwriting platforms in the United States, and cover risks for retail chains, real estate, manufacturers, hotels and casinos, and municipalities. The company contracts with third-party agencies to underwrite various professional liability, excess casualty and primary general liability programs.
