Following the recent onboarding of our M&A insurance team in the Americas, we are pleased to announce that RP Underwriting (an affiliate of RiskPoint A/S) has begun underwriting transactional risk coverage in the United States. Through an underwriting agreement with Arch Specialty Insurance Company* (S&P: A+, A.M. Best: A+, Moody’s: A2), RP Underwriting now has the ability to deploy capacity of up to USD 25m per risk to underwrite and service Representations & Warranties (R&W), Tax Liability, and Contingent Risk insurance products for our global private equity and M&A clients.
This exciting partnership furthers a long-term strategic alliance between Arch and RiskPoint, which have worked collaboratively since RiskPoint’s launch in 2007 in placing complex multi-line risks globally. RP Underwriting is also in advanced discussions with several other leading global specialty insurers to expand our initial capacity in the near-term to create additional strategic value for our key partners.
The RiskPoint Group’s growing global M&A presence now features over thirty dedicated individuals across nine countries, including the United States. With this expanded capability, RiskPoint is poised to be the underwriter of choice for M&A insurance products globally and a market leader in servicing brokers and clients in cross-border transactions.
Please continue to follow us as we release more information on our U.S. offering in the very near future. In the meantime, please feel free to reach out with any further inquiries.
