Broking group Arthur J Gallagher has bought Surrey-based employee benefits consultant and broker Orb Financial Services for an undisclosed sum.

Orb director Geraint Williams and his team will continue to operate from Surrey reporting into Gallagher’s International employee benefit consulting and brokerage operations head Leslie Lemenager.

Orb specialises in group risk and healthcare coverage, workplace pension schemes and auto-enrollment, travel and dental insurance, and key man and partnership protection for the financial services industry.

Gallagher group chief executive Pat Gallagher (pictured) said: “Orb’s team is widely regarded for providing effective solutions and quality client service, which is what we look for in a new acquisition partner.

“Their solid culture, similar business model and commitment to delivering the highest professional standards will be wonderful additions to our international employee benefits operations.”
