Relation Insurance Services, an insurance brokerage that offers risk management benefits and third party administrator (TPA) consulting services through its family of brands across the U.S., has entered into a definitive agreement acquiring J. Deutsch Associates Inc., a New York City-based, privately owned and operated insurance agency. Terms of the transaction are undisclosed.

The transaction is expected to bring together complementary portfolios and deepen Relation’s Education Solutions student health insurance offerings. Additionally, the acquisition expands Relation’s footprint in the Northeast. The purchase is Relation’s first in New York.
