The Archer Transactional Division of Balance Partners, a rapidly growing multi-line Managing General Underwriter, seeks current representation & warranty insurance underwriters, M&A lawyers, and CPAs to join Archer’s build-out.
The right R&W underwriting candidates will: analyze risks arising out of representations and warranties in M&A purchase agreements, exercise sound judgment on the potential risks arising out of such reps & warranties and negotiate RWI policies that appropriately address the coverage for such risks. Negotiating policy terms against large firm attorneys requires strong resolve and commercial judgment that will inform the underwriter when loss could be triggered under an RWI policy.
Archer's RWI underwriters will engage in all of the following:
reviewing business and legal risks arising in M&A transactions,
drafting indications of interest from Archer for underwriting transactional risk insurance policies,
analyzing third-party due diligence reports produced in M&A transactions,
conducting interviews of buyer deal teams and their advisors,
drafting and negotiating the terms of RWI policies, including crafting exclusions around identified risks that could trigger payments under the policy, and
developing relationships with brokers, law firms, private equity firms, corporations, and other stakeholders in the transactional risk insurance sector.
Over the last decade, numerous lawyers, CPAs, brokers and other professionals have transitioned into the transaction liability underwriting space and very few have since exited. Candidates can expect a dynamic and rewarding field of insurance with a close-knit community of professionals that have found stimulating careers outside more traditional career paths.
