Mr. Milnes explained the genesis of Optisure to Agency Checklists in our November 22, 2016 article entitled “Peter Milnes Announces New National Brokerage Firm, Optisure Risk Partners,”
A firm that operates locally with global capabilities
In announcing Optisure Mr. Milnes stated Optisure’s regional partners will operate locally but with global capabilities that address the entire spectrum of risk management, employee benefit and property-casualty insurance needs.
Mr. Milnes noted, “As a result of regional firms being acquired and consolidated by national players, often with investors with short term time horizons, clients are left without local access to peer business owners in the insurance industry. Optisure will provide the solution to enhanced capabilities while our founders stay involved as owners of the business.”
Founding organizations of Optisure generate over $140 million in insurance premium
Optisure’s founding organizations include Aspen Insurance Agency of Manchester, New Hampshire; Richards Robinson Sheppard Insurance of Boston and Beverly Massachusetts: Mather and Pitts Insurance of Essex and East Hampton, Connecticut; Kinloch Consulting Group of Melville, New York; The Alliance Group of Red Bank, New Jersey; and SG & Associates of Miami and Pembroke Pines, Florida.
