NETHERLANDS - Aon Nederland has acquired insurance broker and risk adviser Dorhout Mees Assurantien BV (DMA) for an undisclosed amount.
Aon said the purchase would strengthen its position in the middle-market business segment in the Rotterdam region.
The firm said the companies had reached agreement on the transfer of DMA shares to the global risk adviser and insurance broker, effective retrospectively from January 1, 2005.
“This acquisition is in line with our endeavour to offer a broad range of products and services in the middle-market business segment,” said John van der Steen, chief executive officer at Aon Nederland.
“We hereby strengthen our position and increase our effectiveness, particularly in the Rotterdam region but also beyond.”
DMA was founded on January 1, 2002, as a continuation of a subdivision of insurance broking company Fortis.
Aon said DMA’s employees and clients would be transferred to Aon as part of the deal, with the new client portfolio integrated into Aon’s existing organisation.
Aon Corporation is a provider of risk management services, insurance and reinsurance brokerage, human capital and management consulting and specialty insurance underwriting.
