Aston Lark announces two acquisitions

Goldman Sacks backed consolidator Aston Lark has acquired Irish broker Deanspoint Insurance Brokers Limited, which trades as Abbey Murphy Insurance, and Bournemouth-based broker, The Health Insurance Company. The latter acquisition bolsters Aston Lark’s employee benefits and healthcare insurance business with further deals planned.

The Health Insurance Company was founded in 2016 by experienced health insurance broker Paul Spector. Commenting on its acquisition, Peter Blanc (pictured), group CEO at Aston Lark, said: “We are delighted to welcome The Health Insurance Company to Aston Lark’s Employee Benefits family. Paul’s ethos for customer service fits in perfectly with Aston Lark.

“We are growing strongly in the private health insurance market and we continue to seek other like-minded private medical insurance brokers that want to join forces to be able to better service their clients going forward.”

Commenting on the acquisition of Abbey Murphy Insurance, Robert Kennedy, CEO of Aston Lark Ireland, said: “They have built a fantastic business based on client-first principles, delivering a high level of customer service and focusing on building long-lasting relationships, which aligns with our values. We could not be prouder that they have chosen Aston Lark Ireland as their home.”
