Great-West Lifeco to acquire financial services firm Financial Horizons Group

WINNIPEG - Great-West Lifeco Inc. (TSX:GWO) has signed a deal to acquire Financial Horizons Group, which has 30 offices across Canada.

Financial terms of the deal were not immediately available.

Financial Horizons is a managing general agency that provides insurance and other products and services to financial advisers.

Great-West says the existing management team, including Financial Horizons founder and chief executive John Hamilton, will remain in place and continue to run the business.

The acquisition is subject to regulatory approval and customary closing conditions.
