Gallagher strengthens professional lines programmes with latest buy
Global broker Arthur J Gallagher has acquired a Colorado-based firm as it looks to expand its existing footprint in professional lines programmes into new and growing segments.
Ryan Insurance Strategy Consultants assists financial advisors with insurance recommendations for their clients. With its research focused on life, disability and long-term care insurance planning, the team performs due diligence on new and existing insurance plans prior to recommending any insurance solution. Ryan also helps administer association group insurance benefit programmes that insure financial advisors for their own personal insurance needs.
John Ryan and his associates will continue operating from their current location under the direction of Kevin Garvin, head of Affinity North America for Gallagher's retail property/casualty brokerage operations.
Patrick Gallagher, Jr., chairman, president and CEO of AJG, said: “Ryan's strong relationships with leading financial planning associations will help us deepen and expand our existing footprint in professional lines programmes into new and growing segments. I am excited to welcome John and his colleagues to Gallagher.”
