We work to meet the needs of a variety of surety companies spanning national, regional and specialty underwriters. We write predominantly excess of loss structures and will entertain quota share programs containing short duration risks or other mitigating features such as sliding scale structures and loss ratio caps.

Political Risk

Arch Re is a participant in the political risk space with a focus on traditional “Sovereign Risk” (i.e. limited structured credit exposure). We tend to focus on trade finance related exposures whereby commodities are insured against confiscation, expropriation, nationalization, deprivation or contract repudiation. We will write this business on either an excess of loss or pro rata basis.
