Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. announced on Tuesday that it has agreed to acquire the partnership interests of Buck, a provider of retirement, HR and employee benefits consulting and administration services.

Patrick Gallagher Jr., chairman, president and CEO of Gallagher. “Through the complementary strengths of Buck’s defined- benefit offerings, investment consulting, digital employee engagement platform and international footprint, the acquisition will broaden, deepen and enhance our client offerings.
