“The acquisition strengthens our health and benefits business unit and consolidates us among the largest brokers of that segment. In addition to a highly qualified team, Brokers brings us strong knowledge and experience in managing clients in the middle segment, which is strategic for us. Although it also has businesses in equity risks, financial risk liabilities, its portfolio is mostly made up of clients in the benefit segment who now have access to all our products and services”, he said.
