Aston Lark has acquired Essex Insurance Brokers Ltd for an undisclosed amount.
Established in 1964 and based in Hornchurch, Essex Insurance Brokers serves both personal and business clients across the UK, with a “particular specialism” in the film and visual arts insurance sector.
Beverley Harle, brokers director at Essex Insurance Brokers, said that Aston Lark is the “perfect partner” with the “ideal pedigree” for its business – adding that the group is “confident” that this next chapter in the life of its company will be an “excellent opportunity for the business”.
Neil Harle, director at Essex Insurance Broker, said: “For many years we have competed with Aston Lark’s performance film and media brand for film insurance business. Now we join forces, which is good news for us and even better news for our clients.”
Peter Blanc, Aston Lark Group CEO, added: “I am delighted to welcome Beverley and Neil to Aston Lark. We are seeing significant growth in our film and media book and I am really proud of the specialist knowledge we have in our growing team. The addition of Essex is perfect and broadens our capability even further.”
