Brokerslink welcomes new Canadian affiliate Navacord

Toronto, ON (July 4, 2019) – Navacord, one of Canada’s largest commercial brokers, has joined global broking business Brokerslink as its latest affiliate in the North American region.

Navacord trades under fifteen different broker partner brands across the country as it continues to execute its growth plans in Canada. The organization has a unique ownership model allowing the entrepreneurial spirit of its partners to thrive whilst maintaining their own independence and identities, this is closely aligned with Brokerslink’s philosophy of providing its independent broker partners and affiliates with the support of a large multinational organisation.

“Navacord has built an excellent reputation for delivering in-depth expertise and a forward-thinking approach to risk transfer for their clients,” said Brokerslink chairman José Manuel Fonseca. “These capabilities, together with the scale and scope of these services across Canada are important to our global partners and affiliates. I’m delighted to welcome them to Brokerslink.”

“Navacord has doubled in size over a four-year period and our desire is to more than double again by 2022,” said Shawn DeSantis, President and CEO of Navacord. “We knew that becoming Brokerslink’s only Canadian Affiliate would allow us to serve the needs of our clients even better and help us to achieve our goals.”

The addition of Navacord to the Brokerslink network follows Alliant Insurance Services (Alliant) becoming a new partner in the US following its acquisition of Crystal & Co. earlier in the year, the two businesses will strengthen Brokerslink’s position in North America.
