Arch Insurance appoints new Middle East senior underwriter
Arch Insurance International has appointed Jalal Chtioui to the position of senior underwriter, terrorism, political violence and war, effective immediately.
In his role, Chtioui will focus on underwriting political violence risks in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). He will also support Arch’s continued expansion in the region across additional areas, including casualty lines. Based in London, he will report to Andrew Bauckham, head of terrorism, political violence and war.
Chtioui has a wealth of insurance market experience, across both underwriting and broking. He joins Arch from Chaucer MENA Underwriting Limited, where he was regional development underwriter, and has previously held roles at Lockton and Zurich. A highly accomplished practitioner, he also has significant cross-class experience including general liability, cyber, and financial and professional lines.
“Jalal is an exciting new addition to the team,” said Bauckham. “He brings a wealth of experience, expertise and local knowledge, gained from nearly a decade in Dubai, to support our continued expansion in the MENA region. He will be a valuable asset to both our team and other specialty areas within Arch, as we continue to strengthen our market standing, service proposition and relevance to our brokers.”
