EPIC Insurance Brokers & Consultants, a retail P&C insurance brokerage and employee benefits consultant, has launched Private Equity Employee Benefits, a specialised group dedicated to serving Private Equity and Alternative Asset Management firms and their portfolio companies.
The group is led by industry veterans Larry Kirshner and Ryan Dwyer. At the same time, the team will also be part of EPIC’s Financial Services division under Philip V. Moyles, Jr.
EPIC states that the new group will offer clients a widened depth of knowledge, as well as industry-leading analytics, best-in-class M&A due diligence reporting, and dedicated teams experienced in servicing the demanding and fast-growing alternative asset management space.
Additionally, industry veteran, Dwyer has managed an Atlanta-based team for many years, focusing on large employers primarily owned by prominent Private Equity (PE) firms.
Elsewhere, for the last 20 years, Kirshner has been building a highly successful benefits practice in the Northeast. Since 2019, he has worked directly with EPIC’s Financial Services team as the Northeast Employee Benefits Practice Leader for PE and Alternative Asset Management firms, building out M&A due diligence capabilities, establishing relationships with mid-market PE firms, and growing revenue specifically related to PE transactions.
“With deep relationships and decades of experience in their respective markets, these teams fit together in a way that positions EPIC’s Financial Services division for accelerated growth and collective success,” said Philip V. Moyles, Jr., Chief Growth Officer and President of EPIC’s Financial Services division.
“Combining these two complementary teams allows us to successfully compete on all types of opportunities related to private equity-owned businesses.”
EPIC recently expanded its Financial Services division with the creation of its newly formed Insurance Capital Solutions (ICS) group.
