BOSTON--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Liberty Mutual Insurance has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the assets of TRU Services, LLC, a Beverly, Massachusetts based managing general agent (MGA) that specialized in providing Medical Stop Loss products to mid- and large-size medical plan sponsors. TRU underwrites both specific and aggregate stop loss coverage, administering approximately $65 million in premium in 2016.
Once the transaction is closed in Q2, the founders of TRU, Jerry and Anne Trupiano, along with the entire 38-member strong TRU team, will join Liberty Mutual’s Specialty Lines-focused business unit Liberty International Underwriters (LIU) as employees. Once TRU becomes part of LIU, it will continue operating as an MGA throughout 2017 and will transition to directly writing Medical Stop Loss for LIU by January 1, 2018.
“As we look to expand our product offerings, medical stop loss offers an exciting opportunity for LIU, and the acquisition of an industry leader like TRU gives us a strong foothold in the market,” said Jim Hinchley, President of LIU Americas.
Jerry Trupiano, co-founder of TRU, said: “Liberty Mutual provides a terrific platform for the TRU team to continue to grow and develop the business we’ve built up over the past two decades. Anne and I are thrilled to become part of the Liberty Mutual family.”
