USI is a leading provider of insurance and employee benefit brokerage services to middle-market clients across the US. The company employs more than 8,000 associates in approximately 200 offices across the US. USI has more than 150 years of consulting and brokerage experience through acquired agencies. Today, USI is approaching $2 billion in revenue.
The Manager was attracted to the favourable and stable industry dynamics as insurance is typically a non-discretionary product. In addition, the majority of the middle-market is serviced by small agencies in a highly fragmented industry, which the Manager believes provides opportunities for market share growth and consolidation.
