Arch Insurance International has appointed Tim Watson as senior underwriter for credit and political risk.
Watson, who is set to join Arch in mid-2021, will be based in London, UK, and will report to Ed Cornish, head of credit and political risk. He will focus on opportunities to continue Arch’s “strong growth” in the credit and political risk sector, while also enhancing the unit’s service capabilities.
The new hire brings over 10-years of market experience within the credit and political risk class of business. Prior to joining Arch, Watson was a credit and political risk underwriter at Canopius Group. Before that, he held the same position at ANV and did a spell as a terrorism and political violence underwriter at Jubilee.
“Arch has achieved strong growth across its credit and political risk portfolio since the establishment of the team two years ago,” Cornish commented. “Tim’s experience and expertise make him an ideal addition to our team, and he will play a key role in helping to further strengthen our broker relationships in this highly competitive and fast-evolving sector.”
