Alliant Insurance Services has announced the formation of a new brokerage service vertical that will provide expertise to private equity firms and alternative asset investors.
The unit, called Alliant Mergers & Acquisitions, will be led by Senior Vice President Jonathan Gilbert.
“In the last decade, there has been considerable investment by private equity firms in specialty industries, especially within aviation, energy, healthcare, and life sciences,” said Peter Arkley, President, Alliant Specialty.
“By combining our talented M&A team with our presence as the largest specialty broker, Alliant truly sets the bar at a level higher than our competition can jump.”
Headquartered in New York City, the Alliant Mergers & Acquisitions group has collectively worked on over 10,000 transactions and serves over 150 private equity firms.
Alliant services include pre-close due diligence, transactional risk placements, brokerage services to portfolio companies, and the development of procurement initiatives.
“I am excited to be leading the charge for Alliant,” said Gilbert. “Our team understands and is committed to the M&A community, and Alliant provides an excellent place for us to continue to thrive under this formalized department and provide exceptional service to our clients.”
