AUB Group announces capital raising

Discussing the announcement, AUB Group CEO and Managing Director Mark Searles said, “This capital raise signals our firm intent to build on FY18’s success, as we approach 2019. We see a number of strategic opportunities in market, and we’re making strong progress in the execution of our ‘total risk solutions’ strategy, as we respond to evolving market conditions by providing a diverse range of risk management services and solutions.”  

Over the past five years, AUB Group has invested approximately $170 million into successful acquisitions, providing the Group with investments in a robust network of diversified risk management enterprises, all supported by AUB Group’s unique ‘owner-driver’ partnership model.
