Arch Capital Group has appointed Christine Todd to the role of Chief Investment Officer, effective June 7.
Todd will report to Chief Executive Officer Marc Grandisson and have responsibility for setting the firm’s investment strategy and managing the day-to-day operations of the investment portfolio.
She succeeds W. Preston Hutchings, who is retiring from Arch later this year but is staying with the company as a Senior Adviser assisting Grandisson with special projects.
Todd most recently served as the Head of Fixed Income, U.S. for Amundi US, and brings over 30 years of experience to the role.
She has also held executive roles at Neighborly Investments, Standish Mellon Asset Management Company LLC and Gannett, Welsh & Kotler.
“Christine is a dynamic and strategic investment leader with the experience and expertise to help bring our strong investment team into the next era,” said Grandisson.
“Her deep understanding of the insurance industry, her ability to lead and develop teams, and her strong ability to collaborate across an organization make her a welcome addition to Arch and to our Executive Leadership Team.
“I would like to thank Preston for his contributions to the Company over the past 16 years. He assembled a world-class investment team that produced excellent results for our shareholders amid an evolving economic landscape and numerous financial stresses and challenges.
We are eternally grateful for his guidance and leadership in managing our portfolio,” Grandisson added.
