BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Wholesaler gets new private equity investor

Financial growth

Private equity firm Genstar Capital LLC has become a new investor in excess and surplus lines wholesaler Worldwide Facilities LLC.

Meanwhile, Radnor, Pennsylvania-based Lovell Minnick Partners is exiting its investment in Worldwide. Financial terms of the private transaction were not disclosed, according to a joint statement by the two private equity firms.

Los Angeles-based Worldwide was the fifth-largest wholesaler according to Business Insurance’s latest ranking, with $1.28 billion in 2017 premium volume.

Worldwide completed its acquisition of national specialty intermediary Gerald J. Sullivan Associates Inc. in June 2018.

In 2016, broker Acrisure LLC said it had signed a definitive management-led buyout of the company, which is now based in Caledonia, Michigan, with its management and operating partners acquiring control of the firm from San Francisco-based Genstar, which had acquired the company in 2013.
