NEW YORK – 11/13/2014 –(BUSINESS WIRE)– The Travelers Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRV) Chairman and CEO Jay Fishman sent the following letter to Travelers employees:

To my partners and friends:

I am writing to let you know that what I thought for a long time was a back problem has been diagnosed as a neuromuscular condition. While fortunately it has so far been slow progressing, you may soon see me with a cane or other gear to help me get around. You should know that I feel good and, with the full support of our Board of Directors, nothing about this circumstance changes my ability or plan to continue as Chairman and CEO. I remain fully engaged and committed.

Two of the things I love so much about my job are being part of an exceptional leadership team, whose experience, commitment and expertise has made us a leader in our industry, and working with all of you. You are an extraordinary group of individuals, and your dedication to doing business the right way has made this place truly exceptional. I am proud to work alongside you.

Sincerely yours,
