Arch Insurance International bolsters professional liability unit

Arch Insurance International (Arch), Arch Capital Group Ltd’s wholly-owned subsidiary that provides specialty risk solutions worldwide, has continued its senior hiring spree this year by appointing Patrizia Barattini as its new senior professional liability underwriter, its second senior underwriting hire this month.

Barattini is an accomplished underwriter with 10 years of experience in the professional liability sector across European and international accounts. She joins Arch from Markel International, where she was most recently an underwriter within the professional liability team.

In her new role, commencing immediately, Barattini joins Arch’s professional liability team to deliver insurance solutions across a broad range of clients and territories. Based in London, she will report to Austen Barnes, underwriting manager, professional liability.

Commenting on the new team member, Barnes commended Barattini’s considerable expertise across professions and territories not currently within Arch’s book of business, a key to its strategy to expand into new areas while bolstering its standing in its existing sectors.

“At Arch, we are continually seeking opportunities to develop our professional liability portfolio,” Barnes added.

Barattini’s entrance to Arch follows Richard Smith’s appointment as the company’s new senior warranty & specialty affinity underwriter.
