Risk Strategies acquires Anderson Corporate Solutions


Risk Strategies has expanded its employee benefits consulting services with the acquisition of specialist life and health benefits firm Anderson Corporate Solutions.

The acquisition of the Georgia-based company will add to Risk Strategies’s existing local presence in southeast America.

Anderson Corporate’s employee benefits consulting practice specialises in serving the needs of architectural and engineering firms.

Its products range from core benefits plan design to voluntary benefits and wellness programmes, as well as international health insurance.

John Greenbaum, national employee benefits practice leader at Risk Strategies Company, commented: “Aligning business objectives with employee needs is a complex undertaking.”

He added: “Joining forces with a company that understands those complexities and navigates them successfully time and time again will only strengthen Risk Strategies’s own offerings. Anderson expands our ability to provide clients in the southeast with proven experts who can simplify their challenges.”

Fred Nash, prinicipal of Anderson Corporate, said: “Our business has thrived because it has been built on the value of specialisation. Becoming part of Risk Strategies Company allows us to continue with that focus, while bringing a scale of national resources and extended expertise to benefit our client base and enhance our competitive position in the market.”

On 11 July, Risk Strategies also announced the appointment of Kate Genovese and Pauline Sobelman to its employee benefits practice group, expanding its New York-based team.
