Terms of the transaction were not disclosed, but Helfer & Associates served as adviser to Achieve Alpha.

Heffernan Insurance Brokers formed an alliance with TrustLayer in 2023 to automate insurance verification by providing customers with access to a risk management platform powered by artificial intelligence (AI) technology.

The partnership is based on TrustLayer’s AI-based collaborative risk management platform that facilitates faster and improved proof of insurance verification.

Using the platform, Heffernan customers will be able to better manage their risk exposures.
