US-based property and casualty insurance broker NFP has acquired the Cronin Insurance Consultancy (Cronin) for an undisclosed sum.

The acquired company is a commercial insurance intermediary based in West Midlands, UK.

NFP said Cronin’s acquisition expands its presence in the region and enables Cronin to offer its clients integrated risk management solutions.

NFP added that by joining the broker, Cronin will get access to a stronger infrastructure of support and be able to provide its current clients with a greater selection of group benefits, risk, wealth and retirement options.

Set up in 2018, Cronin offers a range of products across commercial and personal lines.

Under the agreement, the entire Cronin staff, including owner and managing director Darren Cronin, will join NFP.
