TMK completes acquisition of WNC Holdings

Tokio Marine Kiln (TMK) today announced that it has bought the remaining 51 percent share in WNC Holdings – a market-leading provider of specialty insurance products and services for US-based clients.

WNC, a Managing General Underwriter, provides a range of specialty risk management solutions including private flood, builders’ risk and lender–placed products. It expects approximately $200 million of net written premium in 2018.

TMK has worked in partnership with WNC since 1986 and acquired a 49 percent share of the company in June 2011. WNC will retain its existing brand as it continues to drive growth in its Flood and Construction divisions and launches its HomeownerSelect® product for mortgage servicers.

Pat Blandford, CEO of WNC, said: “We are excited about this partnership with TMK, which underpins our continued expansion and development. With TMK’s support, we have broadened our business mix and look forward to offering more product lines to our customers as we expand. To reflect this new phase, we have also refreshed our brand identity and launched a new website to give clients easy access to our people, products and services.”

Charles Franks, Group CEO of TMK, said: “We are committed to building and maintaining long-term, profitable partnerships with high quality businesses in strategically significant territories and we are able to do so thanks to our substantial financial strength. Through this investment, we will continue to capitalise on WNC’s high quality underwriting capabilities, strong management team, established brand and proven track record of generating profits, as we have done with them over the past 30 years.”
