Speciality insurance brokerage and risk management company Risk Strategies has strengthened its presence in Ohio, US, by acquiring First Insurance Group.

Risk Strategies has bought the company from Premier Financial for an undisclosed sum.

With headquarters in Ohio, First Insurance Group provides various personalised insurance placement services for commercial and personal property, as well as casualty, health, life and employee benefits.

The company also offers fee-based consulting services for employee benefits programmes and other related services. 

The latest deal helps Risk Strategies to add First Insurance’s market-specific expertise into its portfolio.

It comes shortly after Risk Strategies announced the acquisition of Combined Underwriters of Miami, which is an independent insurance agency that provides its clients in South Florida with commercial and personal insurance offerings.
