Arch Re is a leading diversified reinsurer, with operations in most major global insurance centers. We are a well-capitalized and secure provider of risk transfer solutions to our clients, as evidenced by the strong ratings we enjoy from leading rating agencies. We offer treaty and facultative property and casualty reinsurance on a worldwide basis, including property catastrophe, property, liability, marine, aviation and space, trade credit and surety, agriculture, accident, life and health, and other specialty lines of coverage such as terrorism and political risk

Our mission is to offer meaningful capacity to the global reinsurance marketplace, creative solutions and superior client service. Our team of experienced practitioners is recognized by clients around the globe as being best-in-class in providing expert underwriting, skilled claims management, outstanding service and world-class product offerings, all backed by exceptional financial strength.

At Arch Re, we employ a disciplined underwriting approach, focusing on areas where we can bring stability and forge long-term relationships with ceding companies and brokers. We ensure that each cedant's risks are priced appropriately, based on its circumstances. Risks are typically evaluated on various factors, including:

  • Historical loss data on the cedant and, where available, on the industry as a whole in the relevant region(s);
  • Projections of future loss frequency and severity;
  • Cedant's financial strength;
  • Cedant's perceived commitment to its business and its reinsurer; and
  • Geographic area in which the cedant does business, together with its catastrophe exposures, and our exposure in that area

Many of our underwriters are also actuaries. Employing actuaries on the front-end of the underwriting process gives us a key advantage in evaluating risks, and helps us to build a stable, high-quality book of business

On November 29, Arch Capital Group Ltd. announced the completion of its previously disclosed acquisition of Barbican Group Holdings Limited, including Barbican Managing Agency Limited, Lloyd's Syndicate 1955, Castel Underwriting Agencies Limited and other associated entities.
