NEWS RELEASE

Travelers to Hold Virtual-Only Annual Meeting of Shareholders

NEW YORK, May 8, 2020 – The Travelers Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRV) today announced a change in the location of its 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and in an effort to protect the health and safety of the company’s shareholders, employees and communities, the Annual Meeting will be held by remote communication in the form of an audio webcast rather than an in-person event.

The Annual Meeting will take place Thursday, May 21, 2020, at 9 a.m. EDT, as previously announced. Shareholders of record of the company’s common stock at the close of business on March 24, 2020, are invited to participate in the Annual Meeting and can access the audio webcast at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/TRV2020.

To be admitted to the Annual Meeting as a shareholder, including to be able to vote during the meeting, all shareholders will need their individual 16-digit control number contained in the proxy materials (e.g., voting instruction form, notice of internet availability of proxy materials or proxy card). Such materials are sent by mail or email from a shareholder’s broker or bank, or from Travelers, depending on how the shares are held.

Shareholders, regardless of their plans to attend the virtual-only meeting, are encouraged to vote and submit their proxies in advance of the Annual Meeting using one of the methods described in the proxy materials. In addition, participants in the company’s 401(k) Savings Plan must provide their voting instructions by the deadline provided in the proxy materials. Shareholders may continue to use the voting instruction form or proxy card provided, and no additional action is required to be taken by shareholders who have already submitted their proxy.

For more information about the Annual Meeting, including the matters to be voted on during the Annual Meeting, please see the “General Information About the Meeting” section of the proxy statement, which is available, along with the 2019 Annual Report, at investor.travelers.com.
