American insurance brokerage firm Hub International has acquired Canadian retirement consulting firm ProCorp Financial for an undisclosed sum.

Based in Ontario, Canada, ProCorp Financial offers boutique benefits and retirement consulting services, specialising in the likes of estate planning, group benefits, life insurance, critical illness insurance, disability insurance and travel insurance.

Hub International Ontario executive chairman Gregory Belton said: “We are thrilled to welcome Hugh [Doyle] and the ProCorp Financial team to Hub. ProCorp Financial has a comprehensive array of product offerings that are well aligned to further expand our employee benefits solutions in Canada.”

According to Hub, the move is part of its ongoing Canadian employee benefits growth and services strategy to expand its employee benefits and retirement solution to address the challenges that clients face, including in retirement.

ProCorp Financial president Hugh Doyle said: “What I found most compelling about Hub is their continued growth and strategy to provide the highest quality of employee benefits and pension solution to clients.

“We are excited to help in this effort as we will provide clients with greater support while building an enhanced service experience for them.”
