Specialty insurance brokerage firm Alliant Insurance Services has acquired Almond Valley Insurance Services (AVI), which offers employee benefits services for both the private and public sectors and has recently expanded into property and casualty brokerage.

Steven Trott, founder and president of AVI Services, said that the company’s acquisition by Alliant Insurance will provide it with expanded resources that will enable his team to serve its clients.

Tom Corbett, chairman and CEO of Alliant Insurance, said: AVI represents a great strategic acquisition by Alliant Insurance Services that enables us to expand our existing presence in Northern California. The synergies with our local property and casualty initiative further contributed to our mutual interest. AVI’s balance of commercial, tribal, and public entity is complementary to our existing presence in the area.

‚ÄúSteve Trott’s business model has been built on highly personal service and the delivery of the best benefits services at the lowest possible cost which matches Alliant’s own business philosophy.

Alliant Insurance Services provides property and casualty, workers’ compensation, employee benefits, surety, and financial products and services to specialized clients, including public entities, tribal nations, healthcare, energy, law firms, real estate, construction, and other industry groups.
