Jensten has now completed the acquisition of East Anglia-based One Broker Group, following approval from the FCA. Its largest acquisition to date, the deal provides Jensten with a significant new regional centre of excellence in East Anglia, featuring offices in Norwich and Cambridge. It brings 115 staff and £60m GWP to the business.
Jensten has achieved substantial growth over the past two years through a number of strategic acquisitions, a fundamental part of its strategy to establish and grow specialist and regional centres of excellence. The business recently announced the expansion of its Yorkshire region with the acquisition of White Rose Insurance Solutions.
Following the successful acquisition of One Broker, Jensten will continue to invest in growing its presence in East Anglia, both organically and through acquisition, with further deals in the region to be announced imminently.
Alistair Hardie, Jensten CEO, commented: “The acquisition of One Broker highlights the strength of Jensten’s proposition to brokers contemplating a sale where a clear commitment to retaining a regional presence is important. One Broker is one of the outstanding regional assets in the UK broking sector, and we are delighted to welcome Robin Plaster, Sean Clark and the rest of the team to the Jensten family. We look forward to working with the team to achieve further growth in East Anglia”.
