Univesta Insurance and Financial Services Inc. is a company with more than 300 employees working across multiple services and branches. Its origin goes back to 1953 with the Poitras, Larue, Rondeau firm, which, in 2001, acquired Groupe Boivin Lebel. That is when the name of the company was changed to Univesta Insurance and Financial Services Inc.
Throughout the years, Univesta Insurance acquired many other brokerage firms such as: Assurance Multi-Avanages in 2003, Ducharme Fortier in 2005, Assurances de l’Est in 2007, Assurances Bélanger, Mercier & Associés, Groupe Paquette and Hébert Groulx in 2008, Duclos & Vaillancourt in 2010, Multi-Assurances and Cailloux Dagort in 2012. In June 2013, Univesta created an alliance with Rake Assurances, one of the major firms established and specialized in transport insurance in Quebec.
The year 2014 will have been a real period of transformation for our company. Nine transactions took place almost simultaneously and most of them are relatively recent, the integration of these acquisitions as well as the harmonious transition of the numerous changes are such a success that it allows us to consider this year an exceptional one. The year 2015 looks so promising acquisitions are already in progress!
In fact, many steps allowed Univesta Insurance to maintain a constant growth while remaining up to date with new business models.
