Arqis advises Aon on acquisition of Karl Köllner/ Marine Insurance Brokers
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.”
