Following our successful launch in the Americas last year, we are now pleased to announce that RP Underwriting (the North American affiliate of RiskPoint A/S) has expanded its panel of capacity for M&A insurance. Through a partnership with Interstate Fire & Casualty, a subsidiary of Allianz Global Risk US Insurance Company ) (“Allianz”), RP Underwriting now has an additional $7.5M of capacity on IFC paper (S&P: A+, A.M. Best: A+). Together with Arch Specialty Insurance Company, RP Underwriting can now deploy up to $32.5m 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.
The addition of Allianz to RiskPoint’s US M&A panel further expands a long-term strategic partnership between Allianz and RiskPoint and adds the second A+ rated carrier to our panel. We are very excited that Allianz has chosen RP Underwriting as its partner for Allianz’s dynamic re-entry into the thriving North American M&A insurance market. RP Underwriting is also in advanced discussions with several other leading global specialty insurers to further expand our panel of high-quality capacity for the North American M&A lines.
The global RiskPoint M&A team (“RP M&A”) features thirty-five dedicated individuals across ten countries, including the rapidly growing presence in the United States. With the expanded Allianz relationship, RP M&A 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.
