Argo Surety is a member of Argo Group International Holdings, Ltd. (NYSE: ARGO), an international underwriter of specialty insurance and reinsurance products in the property and casualty market.
In 2007, Argonaut Group became Argo Group when it merged with Bermuda-based PXRE Group and moved its headquarters from San Antonio to Bermuda. Argo Group subsequently acquired Heritage, a specialist insurer and Lloyd’s syndicate. Its mix of property and liability business and access to the Lloyd’s market made it a complementary addition to Argo Group’s Bermuda and U.S. books of business.
Currently, Argo Group has offices at 30 locations in nine countries, including the United States, Brazil, Europe and the United Arab Emirates.
In 2018, Argo Surety launched a local underwriting operation in Brazil and added staff to the International Practice. Additionally, Argo Surety’s contract unit has more than doubled in both size of staff and GWP following its launch in 2017. As a group, Argo Surety is on track to eclipse $130 million GWP in 2018.
