Hub International Ltd., a Chicago-based insurance brokerage, announced it has acquired the shares of The Benefits Co. Inc. (TBC).

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Headquartered in Windsor, Ontario, TBC assists, guides and protects its clients through the various phases of their benefit and retirement programs, said Hub in a statement.
