ISO Moves its International Headquarters to New Jersey

JERSEY CITY, N.J., May 1, 2001 — ISO, a leading property and casualty insurance information company, has moved its international headquarters to the Newport World Business Center in the Pavonia-Newport section here.

For the first time in its 30-year history, ISO unites more than 1,400 employees formerly based in Manhattan, Pearl River, N. Y., and Rahway, N.J., in the new 22-story ISO Building.

Effective today, all facets of ISO's operations — analytical, actuarial, statistical, product-development, marketing and information technology — will reside under one roof.

ISO's new main telephone number is (201) 469-2000. All ISO toll-free numbers and e-mail addresses remain the same. ISO's new mailing address is:

Insurance Services Office, Inc.
545 Washington Boulevard
Jersey City, N.J. 07310-1686

The location of ISO's regional offices throughout the country are not affected by the home-office move.

Planned in 1999, the move will vastly improve operational efficiency and effectiveness, and significantly lower real-estate expenses.

The 788,384-square-foot, 22-story ISO Building is a granite and aluminum structure that features a double-vaulted marble lobby with a two-story atrium. The office tower is equipped with the most advanced dual fiber-optic telecommunications system in the metropolitan area to meet ISO's demand for a high-technology environment.

In relocating to Jersey City, ISO joins numerous Fortune 500 companies — including PaineWebber, J. P. Morgan Chase & Co., U.S. Trust, and Cigna.

ISO, a privately held corporation, is a leading source of information, products and services related to property and liability risk. For a broad spectrum of commercial and personal lines of insurance, ISO provides statistical, actuarial, underwriting and claims information and analyses; consulting and technical services; policy language; and information about specific locations. In the United States and around the world, ISO serves insurance and reinsurance carriers, agents, brokers, self-insured entities, risk managers and insurance regulators and other government bodies.
