Boston, MA, Nov. 15, 2021 – Burns & Levinson has closed two high-profile fintech deals in the insurance tech industry over the past three months. On October 7, 2021, the firm helped client AgencyBloc, a leading agency management system for life and health insurance agencies/brokers/MGAs, complete a strategic equity investment from Resurgens Technology Partners. This investment will enable AgencyBloc to substantially accelerate its sales and marketing and product development initiatives.
On August 27, 2021, Burns & Levinson closed the sale of client SASid, a leading provider of products, technology, services, and reinsurance in the specialty health & life sector, to Acrisure, a top 10 global insurance broker focused on tech transformation. The acquisition will enable Acrisure to leverage its strong sales and marketing infrastructure to grow SASid’s longstanding affinity relationships with millions of self-employed individuals who can’t be reached through traditional employer-sponsored group plans.
The deal teams were led by Burns & Levinson partner Josef Volman, who co-chairs the firm’s Business Law Group, and partner Alex Khalarian. Morgan Partners served as the exclusive financial advisor to SASid and AgencyBloc in both deals.
