Resilium builds 'significant footprint' with AR acquisitions

Resilium Partners has made more acquisitions as the Ardonagh-backed business ramps up its presence in the Australian market.

The intermediary network says it recently completed deals for authorised representative (AR) businesses Medical & General Risk Solutions and KSLR.

The business also expects to complete shortly its purchase of Hayes Insurance via Brisbane-based Cornerstone Risk Group, which it acquired in the second-half of last year.

The latest investments build further on acquisitions that Resilium Partners made last year, including Fassifern Insurance Services and Insurance Mentor.

It says as these acquisitions are AR businesses, they will form part of Resilium Partners, which is the AR acquisition model within the group.

UK-based Ardonagh secured a majority stake in Resilium Partners in February last year and four months later formed Ethos Broking Australia to pursue mergers and acquisitions here.

The intermediary network has indicated it expects to announce more acquisitions after the Cornerstone Risk Group deal.

“Resilium Partners is the group entity making these and other AR acquisitions in Australia,” Resilium Partners Executive Director Adrian Kitchin told today.

“These latest acquisitions significantly propel the Resilium Partners value proposition, giving us a significant footprint in Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Sydney.”

He says Resilium Partners and Ethos Broking have a significant pipeline of acquisitions at various stages around Australia and expect to announce them over the next few months.

Resilium Partners says Medical & General Risk Solutions and KSLR have now merged with its business hub, Insurance Mentor, with offices in the Gold Coast and Sydney.

“Through Resilium Partners, we have been able to offer both brokers and authorised representative businesses a flexible way to achieve an optimum sale outcome,” Mr Kitchin said.

He says the “flexible approach” has played a great part in the success that Resilium Partners has achieved.

“We have partnered with business owners that want to stay in the business and to implement growth strategies, with our support,” Mr Kitchin said.

“Equally, for those business owners thinking about taking a step back, we are able to provide an alternative to consolidation, bringing their business into a growing and connected group.”
