Argo Group International Holdings Ltd is an international underwriter of specialty insurance and reinsurance products in the property and casualty market.

Argo Group International Holdings Ltd was incorporated on June 1, 1999. The Company is an international underwriter of specialty insurance and reinsurance products in the property and casualty market. The Company along with its subsidiaries offers products and services designed to meet the coverage and claims-handling needs of clients in four business segments: Excess & Surplus Lines, Commercial Specialty, International Specialty and Lloyd's Syndicate 1200. Excess and surplus lines carriers focus on risks that the standard market is unwilling or unable to underwrite due to the risk characteristics or the lack of insurers willingness to offer such coverage because of the perils involved, the nature of the business, or the insured's loss experience. The Company's E&S business segment consists of two operating platforms: Colony Specialty and Argo Pro. Colony Specialty underwrites primary and excess casualty, property, automobile and professional liability coverage for hard to place risks and/or distressed businesses that typically fall outside of the standard insurance market's risk appetite. This business is underwritten through six business units: Casualty, Transportation, Specialty Property, Contract, Environmental and Allied Medical. Through these units Colony Specialty provides coverage to a group of commercial enterprises including contractors, manufacturers, distributors, property owners, retailers, restaurants, environmental consultants and contractors, and smaller medical facilities within the social services, miscellaneous healthcare and long-term care segments. Colony Specialty distributes its products through a network of appointed wholesale agents and brokers specializing in excess and surplus lines and certain targeted admitted lines. Argo Pro is U.S.-only mid-market professional lines platform that provides a portfolio of errors and omissions and management liability products for wholesale and retail distribution partners. Argo Pro offers customized coverage on a primary and excess basis for risks on both an admitted and non-admitted basis, targeting commercial and select financial institution risks in the middle market and upper middle market segments. Commercial Specialty segment provides property, casualty and surety coverages designed to meet the specialized insurance needs of businesses within certain well-defined markets. It targets business classes and industries with risk profiles that can benefit from specially designed insurance programs, tailored loss control and claims handling. Commercial Specialty segment consists of the following risk-bearing business units: Argo Insurance, Rockwood Casualty Insurance Company, Commercial Programs, Argo Surety, Trident and ARIS Title Insurance Corporation. International Specialty segment includes business units that underwrite insurance and reinsurance risks through the broker market, specializing in specialty property catastrophe reinsurance and excess casualty and prof
