Established in 1995, Executive Financial is specialized in executive benefits, life and disability insurance strategies.

Executive Financial founder Peter Lizotte said: "As a part of EPIC, we now have access to best in class compliance, communication and wellness services, not only to support our existing clients but also to successfully compete for new business.

"Additionally, we are very excited about the opportunity to significantly expand our proprietary executive disability income and life insurance programs under the EPIC brand."

The deal will allow EPIC to expand its specialized brokerage and consulting services across the country, in addition to enhancing the position in the executive benefits segment.

EPIC provides insurance services, including commercial property and casualty, employee benefits and specialty program insurance.
