Bluefin Insurance Group today announces the completion of the acquisition of Bonsure Insurance Brokers Ltd (“Bonsure”).
Bonsure, founded in 1994 and based in Dartford, is a general brokerage business offering a broad range of services to both businesses and individuals across the UK. It has developed a particular specialism in providing brokerage and advisory services to care homes and is one of the UK leading brokers in this specialist area.
Bonsure’s two partners, John Whitefield and David Brine, will be joining Bluefin and will relocate to Bluefin’s offices in Chelmsford.
Stuart Reid, CEO of Bluefin Insurance Group, said: “We believe that Bonsure is an excellent broker with a track record for growth and specialist skills in areas such as Care Homes. We are very pleased that both John and David wish to continue working in the business as part of Bluefin.
This is a good example of Bluefin’s acquisition strategy, targeting high quality broking operations with areas of specialism which complement the group’s offering. We have made it known that we are pushing our acquisition strategy this year. This acquisition shows that we are open for business and we are hungry for more deals. We hope that our renewed presence in the acquisition market will be welcomed as healthy competition.
Give me a ring if you are considering selling – we believe we have the best offer in town.”
John Whitefield, Partner of Bonsure, said: “Bluefin values the ability of its professionals to bring specialist expertise to customers and is therefore able to meet the consistently high levels of service that we pride ourselves on. We are confident that the attitude and approach of Bluefin is an excellent match for our company. Our customers can look forward to continued excellence as we join a major national broker and we look forward to joining the team and working to expand our business”.
