US insurer Kemper has closed its previously announced acquisition of American Access Casualty Company for a deal valued at around $370 million.

AAC is headquartered in Illinois and provides specialty private passenger auto insurance, having written over $370 million of direct premiums in 2019 through a network of approximately 500 independent agents and over 110 captive agents.
