Clear Group snaps up ProAktive

The Clear Group has acquired Yorkshire-based chartered broker and risk management business, ProAktive. ProAktive has a gross written premium of £27m and was originally founded in 1975. In 2018, a management buyout gave control of the business to the executive team led by Ian Laycock and Andy Morley.

Howard Lickens, executive chairman of Clear Group, said: “ProAktive is another great addition to the Clear family. Ian and his team have a long-standing track record of providing clients a valued based offering.

“They will certainly enhance our proposition particularly in the areas of risk management where they have an outstanding reputation. ProAktive also grows our geographical reach into the north of the UK in line with our long-term ambition to achieve nationwide coverage.”

Ian Laycock, group CEO of ProAktive, added: “We are excited to be joining forces with the Clear Group in a deal which will enhance ProActive's capability to further support our clients and their ambitions.

“Our risk management services, combined with Clear’s commitment to investment in our business and people will certainly increase the value we can offer to clients.”

The Clear Group now handles over £330m in premiums and employs over 600 people across 15 locations.
