In today's globalized business environment, success is increasingly sought across international borders. U.S. domestic insurance policies generally don’t cover overseas events. As the number of multinational businesses grows, many are turning to CNA for assistance in managing their expanding and complex global property and casualty risks. To assess whether your business requires international insurance solutions, please ask:


Do you:

  • Have foreign sales, imports or exports?
  • Sell products over the internet?
  • Have employees who travel outside the U.S. on business?
  • Have overseas facilities, licensing, subcontracting or joint ventures?
  • Have foreign suppliers?
  • Have payroll outside the U.S.?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, CNA can provide international insurance solutions to help you navigate your business risks beyond geographic boundaries.

CNA’s worldwide network, broad product array, customer-focused underwriting and superior service, in tandem with our ability to navigate evolving country-specific regulations and compliance issues, allow us to create innovative solutions for companies with international risk exposures.

Our integrated multinational platform seamlessly delivers expertise, market-leading products and capabilities to businesses of all sizes with domestic, international and global exposures. We write business around the globe through our CNA branch network and utilization of our CNA ComPass™ platform, allowing us to manage the administration of the local admitted policies written on a global basis.
