According to reliable sources, U.S.-based leading insurance broker, Truist Insurance Holdings Inc., which is a subsidiary of Truist Financial Corporation, has acquired Wellington Risk Insurance Agency Inc., a Texas-headquartered insurance brokerage service provider.

For those uninitiated, Wellington Risk Insurance Agency offers financial services such as risk management and loss prevention and specializes in the administration and delivery of residential property insurance.

As per the agreement, Wellington will hold on to its name and will team up with Truist Insurance Holdings’ managing general agency (MGA) AmRisc LLC, an organization that underwrites catastrophe and specialty insurance for commercial property.

It is to be noted that Truist Insurance has announced its plans of adding around USD 100 million of combined annual revenue to its wholesale division through five insurance acquisitions in this fiscal quarter.

The company closed three other transactions in this quarter, namely Program Insurance Management of Sarasota Inc., a casualty insurance service provider, Specialty Risk Associates, Inc., a surplus line broker and managing general agency, and W. Brown & Associates Property & Casualty Insurance Services Inc.

CEO and Chairman of Truist Insurance Holdings, John Howard was reported saying that the recent acquisition of Wellington provides the company with an opportunity to accelerate its business expansion, leveraging the insurance service provider’s advanced technology and gain an authoritative status in the residential property insurance vertical.  

Truist Securities Inc. and RBC Capital Markets were reportedly appointed as financial advisors for the transaction, while Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP served as a legal counsel during the transaction.

If sources are to be believed, Truist Insurance Holdings is also planning on securing a deal with Fidelis Group Holdings LLC, an LA-based leading provider of marine insurance coverage and services, by the end of this year.
