“Sompo International said: ”This acquisition takes Sompo International’s long-term relationship with W. Brown to the next level as it will become a wholly owned subsidiary of SI and further exemplifies a shared commitment to serve the general aviation market.

“The acquisition also complements the broader suite of SI’s aviation insurance and reinsurance products, a rapidly growing segment for the organisation that aligns with its long-term growth strategy.”

Chris Sparro, chief executive officer, US Insurance, Sompo International, said: “We are delighted to formally welcome Scott Brown and his team of loyal, dedicated employees into the Sompo International U Insurance platform.

“This acquisition displays our dedication to the long-term general aviation market and reinforces Sompo International’s commitment to building a portfolio of industry leading, diversified and profitable products.”
