There is a lot of competition in the insurance industry, and sometimes it is more beneficial for two providers or companies to merge to best serve the market and their longevity. This was the case when Republic Insurance acquired a business deal with Starr International Co. Inc. The changes were able to bring customized casualty and property insurance products to a new region and provide clients with more access to claims management, loss control, and reinsurance services.
