Clients of commercial property insurer FM Global will, collectively, be credited with an estimated US$380 million when they renew their policies in 2008. The "membership credit" is a result of the company's excellent operating performance due, in large part, to policyholders' effective loss prevention efforts. FM Global will have credited a total of nearly US$1.3 billion to its policyholders with this fourth membership credit since 2001.

    Eligible policyholders will receive the 2008 credit in the form of a premium reduction at the time of their policy renewal or annual anniversary in 2008. The credit each client will receive will be based on client tenure, with longer-term clients benefiting the most.

"This unique client benefit clearly demonstrates that, as a mutual company, FM Global is obligated and committed to its policyholders," said Shivan S. Subramaniam, FM Global's chairman and chief executive officer. "It also reinforces the benefits of mutual ownership, rewards client loyalty and further demonstrates the close alignment of our clients' needs with those of FM Global."

-- less than five years will be eligible for a 5 percent credit;

-- five to 19 years will be eligible for a 10 percent credit; and
