Risk Strategies Acquires Pennsylvania’s Dash & Love

October 30, 2019

Risk Strategies, a privately held, national insurance brokerage and risk management firm, has acquired Dash & Love Inc., a full-service specialty brokerage based just outside of Philadelphia. Terms of the deal were not announced.

Founded in 1930, Dash & Love is a family-owned specialty retail insurance brokerage providing insurance placement and risk management advice to organizations, individuals and families across Pennsylvania and the tri-state area.

Four generations of the family have worked at Dash & Love. Currently, Ken and Larry Dash manage the company’s commercial insurance division, Steve Dash oversees its life, health and financial services practice, and Susan Dash leads the personal lines insurance division. Evan Dash, who represents the firm’s fourth generation of the Dash family, is actively growing the commercial lines business and is an integral part of the management team.

Risk Strategies’ mid-Atlantic presence has expanded in recent years, beginning with the 2017 acquisition of Philadelphia-based Cornerstone Professional Liability Consultants, a medical malpractice liability specialist.

Also in 2017, Risk Strategies acquired Delmarva Surety, a Maryland-based specialist in the sale and servicing of surety bonds and commercial insurance. In 2018, Risk Strategies announced its acquisition of Arkin Youngentob Associates, a full-service employee and executive benefits firm headquartered in Bethesda, Md.

In 2019, Risk Strategies added two more Maryland-based firms – Rockville-based private lines specialist, Creative Insurance Solutions, and Sparks-based captive insurance services provider, Oxford Risk Management Group.

Risk Strategies offers risk management advice as well as insurance and reinsurance placement for property and casualty, healthcare and employee benefits risks. It serves commercial companies, non-profits, public entities and individuals and has access to all major insurance markets.
