Intact Financial Corporation has announced that Frank Cowan Company, the managing general agent (MGA) it acquired in 2019, has been rebranded into Intact Public Entities – an MGA focused on serving public entity clients.

The company explained that the rebranding offers new opportunities for both clients and brokers, as both Intact Financial and Intact Public Entities “look to deepen their collective expertise.” These opportunities include new product and coverage availability and development, access to data and technology and a focus on important social impact pillars, such as climate change.

A release explained that as Intact Public Entities becomes further integrated with the Intact brand, “clients and brokers will benefit from a wide range of enhancements.” The MGA will provide insurance programs such as risk and claims management services to municipal, public administration and community service organizations across Canada.

“The MGA distribution channel presents a strategic opportunity for Intact to deliver on its promise to build a leading North American specialty insurer. The rebrand of Intact Public Entities represents progress in achieving this goal,” said Intact Financial SVP & chief underwriting officer of North America specialty solutions Pete Weightman.

“We are very excited to share our rebrand which solidifies our position as a proud member of the Intact family. This is a new chapter in the company’s esteemed nine-decade history,” said Intact Public Entities president Larry Ryan. “The future is very bright and clients who have placed their trust in our organization can be assured that we will continue to deliver the same renowned expertise.”

The rebranding will be introduced publicly over the next few weeks.
