|Registration Statement on Form S-3ASR (File No. 333-188799)|
Ladies and Gentlemen:
This letter constitutes an application by The Chubb Corporation (the Company) pursuant to Rule 477 under the Securities Act of 1933 (the Securities Act) for an order permitting the Company to withdraw its Registration Statement on Form S-3ASR, including all exhibits thereto (File No. 333-188799), that was initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the Commission) on May 23, 2013 (the Registration Statement). The Registration Statement became effective upon filing with the Commission pursuant to Rule 462(e) under the Securities Act. No securities have been sold or exchanged or will be sold or exchanged pursuant thereto.
On January 14, 2016, the Company completed the merger contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of June 30, 2015 (the Merger Agreement), by and among the Company, ACE Limited (now Chubb Limited), a company organized under the laws of Switzerland (ACE), and William Investment Holdings Corporation, a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of ACE (Merger Sub). Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub merged with and into the Company (the Merger), with the Company surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of ACE. Subsequently, on January 15, 2016, the Company merged with and into ACE INA Holdings Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of ACE. In connection with the Merger, the Company determined that it is in its best interest to withdraw the Registration Statement at this time.
Please provide C. Andrew Gerlach of Sullivan & Cromwell LLP a facsimile copy of the order consenting to the withdrawal of the Registration Statement as soon as it is available at (212) 558-3588. If you have any questions regarding this application, please contact C. Andrew Gerlach or Benjamin H. Weiner of Sullivan & Cromwell LLP at (212) 558-4789 and (212) 558-7861, respectively.
