IQUWIQUW intends to acquire Agora and its subsidiaries, the Group responsible for providing underwriting services to Agora, Lloyd’s Syndicate 3268.

The company reports that discussions to close the deal are at an advanced stage and it’s expected to complete in the coming days, subject to regulatory and Lloyd’s approval.

Under the proposed deal, Agora’s Property Insurance and Reinsurance businesses form part of IQUW’s portfolio and the Agora team join the IQUW Property Insurance and Reinsurance teams.

The teams will be led by incoming Head of Property, Simon Jackson and Reinsurance Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Stephen Young.
