The Jensten Group has today launched Jensten London Markets, bringing its London market operations and teams together under one single brand, with plans to grow the business.
The move sees Lloyd’s broker Senior Wright, which specialises in liability, construction, engineering, and related industries, and Tasker & Partners, the specialist Lloyd’s and London Market wholesale broking business focused on property and liability classes, come together under a single brand – Jensten London Markets.
Jensten London Markets will be headed up by Barry Reynolds, who joined Jensten when the business acquired Tasker Insurance Group last year, reporting to Simon Taylor, Jensten’s Wholesale Managing Director. Reynolds will be focused on growing the Jensten Group’s specialist market offering for retail broking partners across the UK. The combined operation is increasing its headcount to maintain high levels of service as the business grows.
Barry Reynolds commented:
“Today marks a significant milestone. Jensten London Markets brings together two experienced teams with specialist sector knowledge. Working together, with the strength of the wider Jensten Wholesale team, our proposition to our producing brokers is significantly enhanced.”
Working alongside Tasker Brokers (Europe), which will shortly be relaunched as Jensten Brokers Europe, the Group now has a complete London Markets solution for its brokers, both in the UK and overseas.
Simon Taylor explained:
“Both businesses have a rich history and pedigree and are recognised for being specialists in their chosen areas. The decision to bring them together as Jensten London Markets was not taken lightly. However, the opportunity for our people and partner brokers to come together, combining the skills, cultures, and heritage of both businesses to offer a market-leading proposition is compelling; it was a change all have fully committed to and have actively embraced. It is another excellent example of how we ensure that by becoming part of the Jensten Group, we provide our people and partners with greater opportunities than the status quo.”
