Highcourt Partners and the Breckles Group of Companies announced April 13 that the two companies have merged operations to form the Highcourt Breckles Group insurance brokerage and risk management consulting firm.

The new firm, with offices in Ontario and British Columbia, employs more than 100 employees and has a combined gross written premium value of nearly $100-million.

The two Canadian-owned, privately held companies combined, plan to offer a broad portfolio of insurance and risk management solutions and access for clients to more than 60 insurers worldwide. In making the announcement, the firms say Highcourt brings insurance problem-solving expertise and access to global providers to the new firm, while Breckles is a leader in the delivery of digital customer service.

Mark McKay, CEO of Highcourt Partners and now the CEO of the Highcourt Breckles Group says “combined, we will retain and enhance our high customer service standards and offer clients access to a much broader portfolio of demonstrated, proven solutions.”
