  • Breakdowns of water supply, heating, sewage or automatic firefighting systems; water or other liquid leakage from other premises (water damage, etc.) 
  • Acts of nature 
  • Lightning

  • Automobile or self-propelled vehicle collision if they are not owned by the insured 

One of the most important tasks in Fire & Named Perils Insurance is proper estimation of the amount of coverage based on the replacement cost or book value. 

Replacement cost (insurance based on the «new for old» principle, i.e. the cost of the new comparable property) may be a better solution in the event of loss. 

Book value (the value that factors in depreciation) is a better choice for new properties. In all other cases, book-value based insurance is associated with additional expenses as depreciation is covered by the owner. 

Competent estimation of the amount of an unconditional deductible is of paramount importance in insurance. 

In developing Fire & Named Perils Insurance programs, AIG relies on a customized approach to its clients, gaining insight into busing of their companies and selecting the risks typical of each individual case.
