USI Holdings has acquired the insurance and financial services business of RA Bench (RAB), a Seattle, Washington, based wealth management, executive and group employee benefit insurance brokerage firm.

Under the agreement, the RAB business will be integrated into USI’s existing Seattle office. RAB is expected to contribute approximately $3m in revenues to USI on an annual basis.

“This acquisition strengthens our position as one of the largest insurance brokerage firms in the Pacific Northwest. I am pleased to welcome Rod Bench and the rest of the exceptional professionals from RAB to our team.”
