“We are delighted with the recent acquisitions that follow what has already been a busy period of M&A activity for the business in the rapidly consolidating German commercial lines insurance brokerage market,” said Tassilo Arnhold, private equity partner at AnaCap. “MRHT has strong momentum as it enters new territories and specialist parts of the insurance market, and we look forward to seeing these new working partnerships develop and announcing further growth activity in the second half of 2022 and beyond.”
MRHT’s buy-and-build strategy has seen the company make 15 add-on acquisitions in 18 months. In line with MRHT’s historical M&A approach owners of the businesses acquired will remain fully involved and responsible for their operational activities.
“Our goal is to continue to bring together the best experts in specialist areas of insurance to design and offer best-in-class holistic service to our clients,” said Ralph Rockel, co-founder and managing partner at MRH Trowe. “This is only possible with the right people in place, and I am therefore very pleased that we have been able to attract companies and talent of this nature to the group.”
