Hub acquires NBIF's group insurance business in Edmonton

Hub International Canada West has entered into a strategic agreement with National Bank Insurance Firm (NBIF) to acquire NBIF’s group insurance activities in Edmonton, AB.

​“We are excited the group insurance services team of NBIF has joined us and will help strengthen our employee benefits solutions for [plan sponsor] clients in Western Canada,” said Hub president of employee benefits Kevin Rome, as reported by Benefits Canada.

NBIF president Peter D. Thompson commented in a statement that the partnership with Hub would provide the organization’s plan sponsor clients with a broader range of products and services, as well as a larger pool of resources and experts to tap into.

The deal comes months after Hub and NBIF had made a similar transaction in March, which saw NBIF transfer its group insurance activities in Quebec to Hub. According to Hub president and CEO Stephen Blais, NBIF’s group insurance services will be a major asset for the brokerage’s growth strategy.
