JDS Benefits, LLC, Powter Risk Advisors, and Jordan & Jordan Insurance have announced the multilateral merger of their organizations under the formation of GDP Advisors, LLC. This collaboration combines each of the firms' specialties and expertise within the Employee Benefits, Risk Management and Insurance markets, and in addition will allow current and future clients to have all the services of a larger national brokerage while maintaining the boutique feel that has made each firm dominant in the mid-market space.

"Being able to have such high level partners that are so well respected in their field is such a benefit for our customers and our employees." John Powter, President of Powter Risk Advisors, noted.

Seth Denson, President of JDS Benefits, LLC stated, “We have always believed that rather than being the ‘jack of all trades’ we should focus on being the expert of one – and for us this is employee benefits; however, given recent changes not only within the employee benefits arena, but throughout the insurance market, our industry is no longer one-dimensional. Our clients have come to appreciate the expertise we provide within the employee benefit arena, but have also come to expect that same level of advice and counsel throughout all dimensions of their insurance/risk management portfolio.” Mr. Denson went on to say, “this merger will allow JDS Benefits to continue as experts within the ever turbulent employee benefit arena, while also providing our clients the same level of expertise throughout their other Insurance/Risk needs.”

As a Texas based firm, with clients throughout the United States and abroad, GDP Advisors brings a new and innovative approach to an old and outdated industry. Utilizing the tools and resources Fortune 500 organizations have had at their disposal for some time as well as their own patented process of identifying, quantifying and prioritizing risk, GDP Advisors brings these resources to life for employers of all sizes, thinking outside the box to build custom solutions to meet the needs of each client.

GDP Advisors will be headquartered in McKinney Texas and will be moving to their new office location in December of 2013.
