Insurance Underwriter J&J Unit to Buy Providian Insurance for $495M

J&J Insurance Brokers has agreed to buy Providian Insurance for $495 million.

Milwaukee-based J&J, a subsidiary of international insurance broker Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group (JLT), says it plans to combine Providian, a top 20 commercial lines broker with offices in Madison, Wis., and Kansas City, Mo., with J&J's existing commercial lines division. JLT says the combination will create one of the largest commercial line brokers in the U.S.

JLT says the combined group will have $14 billion in commercial lines business and more than 1,500 employees, including about 200 in Wisconsin. The deal is expected to close in the first quarter of 2018.

JLT also says the deal will generate more than $15 million of cash for JLT.

The deal is expected to close by early 2018.
