Aug 10, 2021

Unison Risk Advisors, a leading independent risk management, insurance and employee benefits firm, is proud to be ranked 33 on the Business Insurance’s top 100 largest brokers for 2021. This ranking is determined from 2020 brokerage revenues generated by US-based clients. The list excludes firms that derive more than 49 percent of their gross revenues from personal lines.

Established December 2020 through the strategic merger of RCM&D and Oswald Companies, Unison Risk Advisors is 100 percent employee-owned and committed to an independent brokerage service model guided by the belief that clients are best served by professionally managed and well-resourced firms that can act independently upon the best interests of the client. It features a combined workforce of more than 650 employees in 12 office locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest.

Under this union, clients continue business with their existing service teams at RCM&D and Oswald Companies, while gaining further access to specialized risk and insurance solutions unique to the combination of these long-standing firms.

“The Business Insurance’s recognition of Unison Risk Advisors demonstrates our proven commitment to providing nationally competitive insurance programs for our clients,” said Robert J. Klonk, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Oswald Companies.

“Through Unison Risk Advisors we are able to provide superior resources and expertise while remaining committed to an independent service model that values the best interests of the clients and geographic markets we serve,” said Bob Cawley, President and CEO of RCM&D.
