Risk Strategies, a privately held, national insurance brokerage and risk management firm with interests in the captives space, has acquired Dash & Love, a full-service specialty brokerage based just outside of Philadelphia.
Founded in 1930, Dash & Love is a family-owned specialty retail insurance brokerage providing insurance placement and risk management advice to organizations and individuals across Pennsylvania and the tri-state area.
Risk Strategies has been growing quickly in the past two years through a series of acquisitions of firms covering professional liability, medical malpractice, surety bonds, commercial insurance and employee benefits. This year, it has acquired Rockville-based private lines specialist, Creative Insurance Solutions, and Sparks-based leading captive insurance services provider, Oxford Risk Management Group.
“Risk Strategies rapid growth and success has been possible largely because we have remained committed to selecting firms that best match our collaborative culture and expertise-driven approach,” said John Mina, Risk Strategies’ CEO. “Dash & Love’s longevity and success has been grounded in a similar philosophy.”
Ken Dash, President of Dash & Love, added: “For 90 years, Dash & Love has built its business and reputation by delivering tailored risk management programs, innovative insurance products and personal claims handling services that made a material difference for our clients.
“Becoming part of Risk Strategies will ensure that we perpetuate, grow our business, and even better assist our clients in a way that stays true to our principles.”
