Efficient, Innovative Solutions
In Europe, our primary mortgage insurance operation — Arch Mortgage Insurance Designated Activity Company — is based in Dublin and is authorised to operate in most European Union (EU) countries. We also benefit from the support of our affiliate company, Arch Underwriters Europe Limited (AUEL), with branches in Finland, Italy and the UK.
We provide efficient and innovative credit risk management and capital optimisation solutions. We are a highly rated and highly capitalised mortgage insurance company authorised and regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland.
We invest in building long term relationships and providing outstanding customer service backed by our financial strength.
Primary Mortgage Insurance
We deliver primary mortgage insurance on new originations through a policy that meets or exceeds the criteria of local supervisor and capital requirements regulation, backed by industry-leading customer service.
Structured Mortgage Insurance Transactions
We are uniquely positioned to meet the needs of EU mortgage lenders thanks to our high insurer financial strength rating, our transaction capacity levels and our team’s track record and experience delivering value-added solutions.
We recently announced our plans to file an application with the Central Bank of Ireland to expand our underwriting operations in Ireland. Arch will apply for regulatory approval from the Central Bank of Ireland to continue from Ireland certain underwriting operations of its UK insurer, Arch Insurance Company (Europe) Limited, and its Gibraltar insurer, Alwyn Insurance Company Limited. Subject to regulatory approval from the Central Bank of Ireland, those operations will be carried out from an existing Ireland-based insurance platform, Arch Mortgage Insurance dac, with supplemental business licenses acquired to match those used in the current UK and Gibraltar operations.
