Brown & Brown of Florida has acquired certain assets of Bentrust Insurance Group and its affiliates.

Established in 1999, BenTrust offers a wide range of retail insurance products and services to its clients across Florida.

Once the deal concludes, BenTrust team will remain in their current Miami location as a branch of Brown & Brown and will be managed by BenTrust’s existing chief marketing officer Vince Castro.

Castro said: "This partnership with Brown & Brown is a win for our clients and our employees.

"BenTrust looks forward to continuing its tradition of providing high-quality, objective-driven service to its customers, but will now do so with the enhanced strength and resources of a large, national organization."

Brown & Brown of Florida executive vice-president Fausto Alvarez will oversee the operations of combined offices.

In August this year, Brown & Brown Insurance of Nevada also acquired certain assets of Waymark Insurance Services.

Waymark offers employee benefits products and services, including discount health and lifestyle benefit programs and consulting services, to clients in Nevada and various other states within the US.

Through its subsidiaries, Brown & Brown provides insurance, risk management, third-party administration, and other services.
