Clements Worldwide, a Washington, D.C.-based insurance broker for individuals and organizations who work across international borders, announced the acquisition of The Financials for an undisclosed amount.

Amsterdam-based The Financials enhances Clements Worldwide’s presence in the Netherlands and expands its reach in the European market, said Clements in a statement.

“One of the strategic pillars at Clements Worldwide is to get ‘closer to the customer,'” said Clements Worldwide President Tarun Chopra. “Our relationship with The Financials has been overwhelmingly positive as Avi Ovadiah and his team are committed to exceed customer expectations through innovative solutions and exceptional customer service.”
