MIB, the life insurance industry’s most trusted and secure partner for data-driven risk management and digital services, announced that it has reached an agreement with a subsidiary of Reinsurance Group of America, Incorporated (RGA) to acquire APEXA, Canada’s leading contracting and compliance service provider for life insurance advisors, MGAs, and carriers. The acquisition expands MIB’s portfolio of digital solutions and client base in Canada.
APEXA's platform connects the Canadian life insurance carriers, MGAs, and advisors through a single digital interface, providing visibility and efficiency to the contracting and compliance process. APEXA's platform has become the leader in Canada, with 95% of major Canadian life insurance companies and their partner MGAs using the service today to connect with over 50,000 independent advisors.
“APEXA was created in partnership with Canadian carriers and MGAs to simplify the advisor contracting and compliance processes,” said Dylan Friedmann, APEXA’s Vice President and Chief Client Officer. “We are excited to join MIB, who shares a similar heritage and culture as well as a mission focused on providing innovative tools to advance the life insurance industry.”
With the addition of APEXA, MIB continues to expand its portfolio of solutions through a combination of internal development, partnership, and acquisitions. As a trusted partner to the life insurance industry for over a century, MIB is committed to supporting APEXA’s clients and the industry with innovative data, analytics, and digital solutions to enable clients to assess risk, gain efficiencies, and enhance client engagement.
“We are thrilled to add APEXA to our growing portfolio of digital solutions and to expand our reach in the Canadian market,” said Brian Winikoff, CEO of MIB. “APEXA’s innovative and unique platform has gained tremendous adoption in Canada and is well positioned to expand with additional services in Canada and potentially the U.S. We look forward to working with APEXA’s management team and partners to continue to advance APEXA’s offering and reach its full potential.”
