Under the deal, announced in January, Amynta also signed a multi-year agreement for Brit to serve as a significant capacity partner to Ambridge.

While announcing the deal, Amynta chairman and CEO Robert Giammarco said: “Ambridge is a high-quality company with an outstanding management team and a successful long-term track record built around innovation, service and underwriting excellence.

“Ambridge significantly expands our MGA business, now writing over $2bn in premiums, and significantly increases our business in the E&S market. Ambridge will operate on a decentralised basis and we look forward to supporting Jess, Jeff and the Ambridge team in growing their business over the long term.”
