BMS Associates re-named after Capital Z investment


BMS Associates, the holding company of specialist broking business BMS Group and underwriting business Pioneer Underwriters, has been renamed Minova Insurance.

The re-naming follows the completion of investment by Capital Z Partners, which raised $50.7 million.

Dane Douetil, group chief executive officer of Minova Insurance, said: “As we launch Minova Insurance, we are delighted to welcome Capital Z as a shareholder and valuable partner to the group. We are proud of the people and achievements of our portfolio companies which give us a strong presence in both the broking and underwriting arenas.

“With significant new capital, we have the flexibility and the resources to continue to expand, potentially through the acquisition of further teams and individuals, but also with the potential for corporate acquisitions. Minova Insurance has an extremely talented management team, well versed in building businesses and I look forward to working with them as we continue to grow our investments.”
