Arch Capital Group Ltd. (Arch Capital or ACGL), a Bermuda public limited liability company, writes insurance, reinsurance and mortgage insurance on a worldwide basis through operations in Bermuda, the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and South Africa, with a focus on specialty lines.
Our current operations were launched from an underwriting initiative in October 2001 to meet demand in the global insurance and reinsurance markets. The combination of our underwriting platform, our experienced management team and our strong capital base have enabled us to establish a prominent presence in the global insurance and reinsurance markets. Our businesses are divided into three platforms: Insurance, Reinsurance and Mortgage.
We seek to increase shareholder value through three main strategic principles:
- Selectively pursue diverse specialty markets where we can apply our knowledge and expertise;
- Maintain flexibility and responsiveness to allow us to take advantage of market opportunities when they arise; and
- Maintain a disciplined underwriting approach to enable us to select risks and price them appropriately in all phases of the insurance cycle.
