US broker Alliant targets Asia expansionApril 6 2018 by InsuranceAsia News Staff
Alliant Insurance Services, the largest specialty insurance brokerage firm in the US, is expanding in Asia as a consequence of its acquisition of Dumortier Risk Management, a California-based insurance brokerage firm.
Dumortier has strong ties to Taiwan and China that will help Alliant grow in Asia.
In a statement, Alliant said Dumortier has employees who speak Chinese, and its strong cultural ties to Taiwan and China made its acquisition a natural progression in the expansion of the Alliant Real Estate practice from the US to Asia.
Chris Chang, president of the Los Angeles-based Dumortier, will join Alliant as an executive vice president.
Founded in 2002, Dumortier represents more than 200 hotel owners and developers.
