23rd April 2019 - Author: Staff Writer

Producers Ag Insurance Group (ProAg), part of the specialty insurance group Tokio Marine HCC, is to acquire crop managing general agent AmTrust Agriculture Insurance Services (AmTrust Ag), a subsidiary of AmTrust Financial Services.

handshakeAmTrust Ag is headquartered in Kansas, US and manages multi-peril crop, crop hail, livestock and named crop peril insurance.

Its products are underwritten by Technology Insurance Company, an Approved Insurance Provider under the Federal crop insurance program.

In 2018, the company managed gross premiums of $103 million, as reported by National Crop Insurance Services (NCIS).

“ProAg believes AmTrust Ag provides a complementary platform to add business from a strong portfolio of independent agents, while improving our profitability and enhancing our diversified portfolio through strategic partnerships,” said Kendall Jones, ProAg’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
