Acrisure Expands UK Footprint With Two Acquisitions 150 150 Haggie Partners

Acrisure, a global Fintech leader, today announces it has completed two acquisitions, further expanding its southern England region managed by Sutton Winson, Acrisure’s largest UK acquisition to date.

Financial and Credit Insurance Services Ltd (FinCred)
FinCred is a specialist credit insurance broker and surety bond expert. Based in Sevenoaks, Kent, but boasting a worldwide book of business, it will further enhance Acrisure and Sutton Winson’s collective capabilities across the United Kingdom. Hannah Lyon-Wall, Managing Director of Fincred, spent more than six years at Markel International prior to taking over the family-owned business in 2016.

Global Broking Solutions (GBS)
Acrisure also purchased Global Broking Solutions (GBS) in a deal which saw the company acquire a client base which spans across all parts of Kent and East Sussex. The strategic move compliments the acquisition of FinCred as Acrisure and Sutton Winson look to form three established office locations in London, East Sussex and now Kent.

Mark McIlquham, president, Acrisure UK Retail, said: “We are excited to continue our expansion in southern England with these two acquisitions, led by the world-class Sutton Winson team. Hannah is a proven leader with a phenomenal track record and a huge future in the industry. We are genuinely delighted to welcome her and the rest of the team onboard.”

Gareth Roberts, Managing Director, Sutton Winson, said: “We are thrilled with the acquisitions of FinCred and GBS, and this is the beginning of something special we are building with Acrisure in the south. Acrisure will continue to support us in acquiring businesses with whom we can culturally align. We now control close to £70mn GWP and expect that figure to surpass £100mn within the next two years through a combination of organic and inorganic growth.”

Lyon-Wall said: “My family and I have known Sutton Winson for years, and when we decided the time was right to sell and become part of a larger organisation, there was only one business we even considered partnering with. We are incredibly specialist in our field and know that Acrisure’s global presence will have a massively beneficial impact on our future growth trajectory.”
