GUELPH, ON, April 4, 2019 /CNW/ - The Co-operators is pleased to announce that they have reached an agreement with Central 1 Credit Union (Central 1) to purchase Credit Union Advantage Insurance Brokerage Ltd.

The portfolio is a program of insurance protection, including coverage for property and casualty, financial coverage and professional liability.
"This is another step forward for CUMIS in strengthening and growing our relationship with credit unions in British Columbia" says Bob Hague, President Credit Union Distribution, CUMIS. "Our team is excited to work directly with the credit unions to ensure they have the risk management and insurance protection they require. We're committed to bringing the same exceptional service that the credit unions experienced with CUAIB."
CUMIS has been the excess insurer for the insurance program for many years and is knowledgeable of the credit unions needs.
CUMIS will maintain a local office in BC to service the insurance program and will be working with the BC credit union system to create an insurance advisory committee.
