Huntington Bancshares has introduced a line of packaged insurance products for small-business customers.
Huntington Insurance Services Inc., a unit of the $28.2 billion-asset Columbus, Ohio, company, added business automobile, general liability, commercial property, and umbrella policies underwritten by Hartford Financial Services Group.
Phone representatives with Hartford will sell the product and provide 24-hour claims service. The products "complement our ability to offer full services to our small-business customers," said William K. Browning, president of Huntington Insurance Services.
Hartford was attractive because it could tailor insurance packages to businesses with less than $5 million in annual sales while offering competitive pricing and name recognition, Mr. Browning said.
