Over the past few years, the platform has grown rapidly and we have ambitious plans for our future to further capitalise on the many opportunities we see.

“The time is now right for our achievements to be collectively recognised through the launch of a clear and distinctive holding company brand and identity. Corant will be the best home for the best people, and it will drive continued investment across our portfolio of broking, technology, underwriting and advisory businesses.”
