Global Contractual Liability Product Established to Address Force Majeure and Additional Existing Gaps

Sole industry solution now available through Aon
CHICAGO, March 9, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- In response to a marked increase in global demand to address contractual liabilities not otherwise covered by existing insurance options, Aon Construction Services Group has secured an offering for up to $100 million in limits to address contractual liabilities such as force majeure events, liquidated damages and performance coverage.


Contractual liability policies are designed to indemnify another person or entity for actions excluded in typical insurance policies. The strongest demand for this type of coverage has been to mitigate the risk of damages resulting from performance shortfalls or delayed completion of a construction project.

"Although contractual liability exposure has remained high, capacity for these coverages had virtually disappeared with the economy's downturn," said Peter Arkley, chairman and chief executive officer of Aon Construction Services Group. "Aon is proud to be the exclusive broker able to offer up to $100 million of contractual liability offerings, and this product development is indicative of the distinct market advantage our clients have come to expect when partnering with our experts."

Aon's contractual liabilities capacity offering can be placed with markets in the U.S., Bermuda, London and Europe, and includes a broad appetite related to the type of work involved, geographic location or responsible entity. Purchase of coverage may be handled on a pooled or blanket basis by a client with a strong understanding of contractual exposures and a willingness to participate in the risk with a reasonable retained amount.

Led by Mark Watson, Aon has invested in a dedicated team to focus on the engineering, analysis and placement of the coverage. The team consists of Gerald Fox and Drummond Abernethy in the UK and Todd Rowland and Vincent Zegers in the U.S. The group's unrivaled experience in this space will ensure the broadest terms possible in financing contractual risks related to construction projects.
