Recent Underwriting Success Stories

A community bank in the Southwest received a non-renewal notice from their existing insurer due to a high level of non-performing assets and receipt of a regulatory order. As a result of our in depth underwriting process, we were able to provide the bank with comparable coverage to their expiring policy including full regulatory coverage.

A regional insurance company, which had recently been downgraded and had a securities class action lawsuit filed against it, was unable to obtain new limits from its existing insurers. Arch was able to offer a renewal quote that provided the company with an unimpaired limit.

A large hedge fund had recently decided to purchase D&O insurance for the first time and wanted a fully customized manuscript policy. Our underwriting team, in conjunction with claims and legal departments, was able to work with their outside counsel to address their specific needs and create a fully manuscript policy to their specifications.
