Arch Insurance International Names New Head of Accident & Health

Terry appointed following Matthews’ retirement; Raeburn promoted to Senior Underwriter

London, 10 April 2024 – Arch Insurance International (Arch) has today announced the promotions of Sebastian Terry to Head of Accident & Health (A&H) and Georgina Raeburn to Senior A&H Underwriter, both effective immediately.

In his new role, Terry is responsible for managing the underwriting activities across Arch’s A&H portfolio. The division provides primary and excess cover across a broad range of areas, including accidental death, permanent and temporary total disablement, and sports disability. Based in London, Terry now reports to Chris Rackliffe, Head of Contingency.

Terry is a highly accomplished practitioner with 20 years of A&H underwriting experience. He joined Arch in 2004 and was most recently a Senior A&H Underwriter. His appointment follows the retirement of Dennis Matthews, who steps down from leading the team after eight years in the role.

Raeburn joined Arch in 2019 following the acquisition of Barbican and has previously worked for Starr Insurance. She was most recently an Underwriter in the division.

Commenting on the announcement, Lino Leoni, Chief Underwriting Officer, Short Tail Lines said: “The promotions of Seb and Georgina show the incredibly strong talent within our A&H team. Seb is an outstanding underwriter and highly respected in the market, both by our peers and brokers, making him the perfect choice to lead the team. I am confident that under his leadership we will continue to grow our relevance and deliver high quality service for our brokers. I’m also delighted for Georgina’s well-deserved promotion which reflects both her technical expertise and strength of broker relationships.

Finally, I would like to thank Dennis for his considerable contribution to Arch and to the team’s success. We wish him the very best for his retirement.”
