Hamburg / Düssel­dorf — ARQIS advi­sed Aon Versi­che­rungs­mak­ler Deutsch­land GmbH on the acqui­si­tion of Karl Köll­ner GmbH Versi­che­rungs­mak­ler and Karl Köll­ner GmbH & Co KG Marine Insurance Brokers. Aon thus conti­nues its growth and further expands its port­fo­lio in the ship­ping, trans­port and logistics sector.

The divi­sion broker Karl Köll­ner, based in Hamburg, serves important major clients in the tradi­tio­nal divi­si­ons such as Property and has outstan­ding exper­tise in Marine Cargo and Hull. “Aon and Karl Köll­ner will comple­ment each other very well,” comments Kai Büch­ter, CEO Aon D‑A‑CH. “On the one hand, there is a broker with first-class indus­try exper­tise and, on the other, a major broker with a broad product range and inter­na­tio­nal network. Our custo­mers will bene­fit from this merger.”

The ARQIS team led by Dr. Jörn-Chris­­tian Schulze (photo) regu­larly acts for Aon, most recently in the acqui­si­tion of TRIUM GmbH Insurance Broker, a broker specia­li­zing in risk manage­ment in the real estate sector.
