Argo International’s Syndicate 1200 At Lloyd’s Adds New Treaty Casualty Reinsurance Class To Its Offerings

Argo Group International Holdings, Ltd. (NasdaqGS: AGII), an international underwriter of specialty insurance and reinsurance products, announced today that it will expand its offerings in the international casualty marketplace to include treaty reinsurance business written through Lloyd’s of London. This new capability adds to Argo Group’s existing lines of international casualty treaty reinsurance available through its Bermuda-based reinsurance platform, Argo Re.

Syndicate 1200 will begin writing international casualty treaty reinsurance for accounts which incept after January 1, 2013 in selected lines. The portfolio will include general liability, professional lines, and motor liability on a global basis, excluding the U.S.

“Being able to write international casualty treaty reinsurance from our Lloyd’s platform follows a successful first year of writing the business at Argo Re,” said Argo International Managing Director Jeff Radke. “Adding this new class of business to Syndicate 1200 reflects the confidence that we have in our underwriting team’s ability to grow profitably.”

Stuart Dale has been named class underwriter, International Casualty Treaty, for Syndicate 1200. Mr. Dale joined Argo International in late 2011 to assist in development of the portfolio after holding senior underwriting roles at QBE and Sagicor. Additional depth and expertise for the portfolio will be provided by newly appointed casualty underwriter Alison Wood, who joined Argo International after 12 years at General Re in London.

“We’re pleased to have received Lloyd’s support for this initiative,” added Mr. Radke. “Our capability to consider all casualty reinsurance business across multiple platforms makes Argo Group a strong competitor in this marketplace, and we look forward to growing this business within our Lloyd’s portfolio.”
