Bermuda-based re/insurer Arch Capital Group has signed an agreement to buy McNeil & Company, a provider of specialty risk management services and insurance programmes to small businesses in the US.

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

McNeil & Co will continue to operate under its existing brand and remain headquartered in Cortland, New York, Arch Capital said in its press statement.

It will operate as a standalone affiliate of Arch Insurance Group (US).

Arch will provide McNeil with new opportunities to expand and grow its business through additional products and resources, which will be offered via McNeil’s existing platform and distribution system.

McNeil & Company founder and president Daniel McNeil said: “We’ve established ourselves as thought leaders in specialized risk management and insurance with a suite of policies that are never off the shelf, with service that’s always a step ahead and with training and risk management programs designed to prevent loss before it occurs.
