With the addition of Mansutti, alongside Mediass and Teksure, we are curating a team of top-tier experts and accelerating the diversification of our proposition, distinguishing Ardonagh Italia as the quality broking platform of choice in this mature and complex market.

Carlo Faina, CEO of Ardonagh Italia added: "Ardonagh Italia will tap into a wealth of insurance broking excellence via the Mansutti team, and we are looking forward to working with this forward-thinking business to unlock further growth in their next chapter with us.
