Amwins Global Risks, the international arm of insurance broker Amwins, has acquired energy and marine focused broker, Roberts Armytage & Partners (RAP), as it seeks to expand its energy practice in London.
“We couldn’t be more excited about partnering with RAP as we have a history built on the success of strategic partnerships with entrepreneurial business teams,” said Nate Mathis, chief executive officer of Amwins Global Risks.
“Through the years, Amwins Global Risks has developed a best-in-class broking platform focusing on sales excellence and is now poised for accelerated growth, concentrating our attention on building the tools and culture to attract and retain top industry talent. Energy is a key area of focus, and we are thrilled to have RAP on board. They will help us as we build out our Global Energy Practice centered in London but with multiple international locations, spanning Upstream, Midstream, Liability, Power, Downstream and Renewables.”
Roberts Armytage & Partners chief executive officer, Mark Roberts, commented: “Over the past eight years, we have successfully built a strong, independent specialty broker. During that time, we have traded with Amwins and are excited to partner with them to take our business to the next stage. We believe our two businesses are highly complementary in terms of people, clients and a focus on the highest levels of service, so we greatly look forward to adding to the expertise, relationships and scale of Amwins Global Risks going forward.”
Meanwhile, in late 2022, Amwins acquired Arena Special Risks’ wholesale business from commercial real estate and retail insurance firm Franklin Street.
