On April 13, 2021, Highcourt Partners, an international insurance and risk management consulting firm, announced the completion of its merger with Breckles Group of Companies, an established independent insurance brokerage, to form the Highcourt Breckles Group (“HBG”), a proudly Canadian operation poised to help businesses and individuals thrive in this new normal post-pandemic world with access to global wealth preservation solutions in the anytime, anywhere digital world. The transaction was funded in Canada and led by Highcourt’s capital resources.
Both privately-held companies are wholly Canadian-owned and operated. Combined, the new entity offers a long history of community, client-centric services with global capabilities in home, auto, business, life and health insurance and risk management solutions to more than 50,000 clients nationwide and access to more than 60 insurance providers worldwide. HBG has a unique understanding of cyber risk and cyber threats, provides insurance coverage and advisory on risk matters, and is a leader in contractual risk, risk strategy, captives and risk response. It also helps Canadian companies navigate through U.S. compliance when expanding into the U.S. marketplace.
