Insurance companies Risk Strategies and One80 Intermediaries have announced an internal restructuring, which will see them operate under a new brand.
Called Accession Risk Management Group (Accession), the new entity is owned by private equity company Kelso & Company.
Risk Strategies is a retail speciality intermediary and risk management provider, while One80 Intermediaries is a speciality wholesale broker and programme management company.
John Mina will lead Accession as its global CEO and the company will continue offering specialised insurance solutions across the US and Canada.
Accession expects the restructuring will make it even easier for the larger business to grow and be adaptable in the future as it continues to expand its portfolio of speciality products and services.
With a focus on specific markets and areas of expertise, each of the current Accession companies caters to different partners and customers in the insurance and risk management sectors.
