Arch beefs up credit and political risk team with new hire

Arch Insurance International has appointed Tim Watson as senior underwriter for credit and political risk.

Watson will take up his post in mid-2021 and will be responsible for underwriting activities across the credit and political risk insurance portfolio. He will be based in London and will report to Ed Cornish, head of credit and political risk.

Watson has over a decade of market experience in credit and political risk, having most recently served as credit and political risk underwriter at Canopius Group. Before that he was credit and political risk underwriter at ANV and terrorism and political violence underwriter at Jubilee.

Cornish highlighted Arch’s strong growth across its credit and political risk portfolio since the team was established two years ago, predicting Watson “will play a key role in helping to further strengthen our broker relationships in this highly competitive and fast-evolving sector.”
