ACE Limited Recommends Annual Dividend; Declares First Quarter 2015 Dividend, Payable on April 21, 2015

The Board of Directors of ACE Limited announced that it will recommend for shareholder approval an increase in the company's annual dividend for the twenty-second consecutive year. The proposal for the 2015 Annual General Meeting calls for a $0.08 increase in ACE's annual dividend to $2.68 per share, to be paid in quarterly installments of $0.67 per share, compared to the current quarterly dividend amount of $0.65 per share. With the 2015 increase, the company's dividend will have more than doubled in the past five years. The Board of Directors also declared a quarterly dividend equal to $0.65 per share payable on April 21, 2015, to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 31, 2015, subject to a required filing with the Swiss Commercial Register. Dividend payments will be made in United States dollars (USD) by the company's transfer agent. The company's par value is currently 24.77 Swiss francs (CHF) per share and, in connection with this dividend installment, the par value per share will be reduced on the record date by the CHF equivalent of $0.65 based on the USD/CHF rate published on March 24, 2015. This will be the fourth of four par value reduction installments as approved by the company's shareholders on May 15, 2014.
