Gallagher acquires specialist crisis and risk management consultancy

Gallagher has acquired AnotherDay, a specialist crisis and risk management consultancy that helps organisations to pre-empt and prepare for complex threats, react to crises and investigate criminality through the use of intelligence and technology.

Founded in 2016 and based in the UK, AnotherDay employs around 20 risk, investigations and crisis response specialists and has supported clients across 90 countries globally.

The firm is led by Jake Hernandez, who will continue to run the business, and the existing team will continue to operate independently under the AnotherDay brand.

AnotherDay will become part of Gallagher’s London-based speciality operations and Hernandez will report to Justin Priestley, executive director of crisis management at the insurance brokerage, risk management, and human capital consultant company.

Gallagher said that AnotherDay will “provide highly complementary additional risk management and crisis expertise” for its growing corporate client base, which is increasingly looking for support in managing an extremely volatile operating environment across political risk/political violence, D&O and criminality, and cyber.

Commenting on the acquisition, Hernandez said: “We have worked with the team at Gallagher for a number of years now, so we know that culturally our two organisations are well aligned.”

“We are excited to work even more closely to deploy consulting, data and technology to help global clients understand potential threats, respond to crisis and criminality, and to provide analytics to transfer any remaining risk into the insurance market based on an accurate perception of potential loss.”

We’re also looking forward to broadening our advisory to (re)insurance markets in dealing with an increasingly volatile risk environment, and Gallagher provides a great platform and infrastructure for us to do that.”

Jonathan Turner, chief executive officer of Gallagher’s speciality division, added: “The expertise, high standards of client service, vision for growth and entrepreneurial flair within AnotherDay made this transaction a compelling opportunity for us.”

“The business fits very well with our strategy of investing in market-leading niche businesses that build on and broaden our specialist capabilities, and the team provides a strong complement to our existing London-based Specialty operations, as many clients are increasingly looking for this type of risk management support. I look forward to working with Jake and the team.”
