The Intergroupe Assurances group was founded in 1996 by five dynamic brokerage firms wanting to unite their efforts to provide additional markets to their respective clientele.
The Intergroupe Assurances Inc. firm, also created in 1996, is the focal point and acts as a market intermediary for the exclusive use of its affiliated members and shareholders.
In 1999, the arrival of new shareholders and Mr. Robert Dupont as project leader injected new life into Intergroupe. Mr. Dupont, on the strength of his 40 years of experience in the field, took on this new challenge with passion and dedication. He received a lot of help from Mr. Roger Pelletier who was then head of the Hallé Couture Assurances firm.
Beginning in 2001, Intergroupe's new approach - based on respect, mutual understanding and especially freedom of action - quickly attracted a large number of affiliated firms and insurers. This formula is still the key factor in the success of our group.
In 2004 major investments were made to consolidate the risk placement and marketing and management support divisions. That same year, Intergroupe opened its new spacious and modern office in Quebec City's Ste-Foy borough.
In 2007 the company spruced up its brand image. Our new colours better reflected the Intergroupe brand's deployment strategy.
The next few years may prove just as exciting and you can be sure that we will always be in the forefront in the wonderful realm of insurance.
From $30 million in total premium volume in 1996, our group now totals almost half a billion dollars in total premium volume.
From the five member firms we had in 1996, we now have more than 110 member firms.
