ARC Mid-Atlantic is based in southern New Jersey, outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

As an excess & surplus brokerage firm, ARC can directly access non-admitted carriers. However, it is important to note that we also maintain excellent relations and large premium volume with standard (admitted) carriers. Our goal is to provide our retail brokers with the best service in the industry. We strive to obtain competitive quotes in a timely fashion, and to share our knowledge and advice so that our retail-broker partners are able to provide quality service to their clients.

ARC Mid-Atlantic provides the expertise and market breadth that allows mid-size retail brokers to compete with the Top-Three brokerage firms when placing Management Liability and Professional Liability insurance. We collaborate with our retailers as partners, as if ARC were the D&O/E&O division of the retail broker’s own firm.
