Our Underwriters

Arch Re utilizes a disciplined underwriting approach to establish enduring relationships with ceding companies and brokers.

We carefully price risks based on individual circumstances, evaluating them on various factors, including:

  1. Additionally, we analyze historical loss data of the cedant and, when possible, the entire industry in the relevant region(s).
  2. Projections for future loss frequency and severity.
  3. Cedant’s financial robustness.
  4. Cedant’s dedication to its business and reinsurer.
  5. The geographic area where the cedant operates, its catastrophe risks, and our exposure in that region.

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.
