Hub continues on Canadian M&A trail

Hub International Limited has announced that it has acquired the assets of Clarity Benefits Group.

Clarity, a Canadian firm based in Calgary, Alberta, provides employee benefit plans, life insurance and group retirement plans to large and small companies throughout Canada.

“Clarity has vast experience in tailoring benefits programs for clients of all sizes, and will add depth to our already strong Canadian benefits solution,” said David Moon, president of Hub International Barton Insurance Brokers, a division of Hub International Canada West ULC. “We continue to strategically build a premier practice and complete employee benefits and pension offering for our clients.”

Kevin Rome, president of Clarity, will join Hub Barton and report to Moon.

“Clarity is entering a new and exciting chapter with Hub,” Rome said. “We look forward to providing a more robust service to clients, in order for them to best implement and manage their employee benefits programs and attract and retain high-performing talent.” This is Hub’s second recent Canadian acquisition. On Monday, the company announced the acquisition of Saskatchewan-based Kelliher Agencies.
