RP Underwriting also expands our brand into the Americas with the commencement of M&A insurance underwriting in 2021. Furthermore, our Singapore office is opening in 2023.
Our team of underwriters consist of some of the most experienced and respected M&A underwriters in the W&I market (called R&W in the US) which enables a commercial and solutions’ based approach to underwriting. Furthermore, as businesses become more global in their operations, we draw upon the strength of our geographical spread of underwriters to bring local knowledge and experience to our transaction teams.
WHAT WE DO
Our approach to underwriting is to partner with brokers to create an appropriate product/policy which is tailored to the nature of the target business and to fit the underwriting timetable seamlessly into the larger requirements of the transaction as a whole.
RiskPoint has enjoyed a long term partnership with all of our capacity providers and as a result, our transaction and sector appetite is extremely broad. We continue to write primary transactions in most industry sectors across global jurisdictions and, in addition, we offer excess capacity across most jurisdictions.
