AssuredPartners swoops for Romero

Assured Partners has acquired Leeds-based Romero Group, which includes Romero Insurance Brokers Limited, its subsidiary Sentient Group Limited and Club Insure Limited. The group was founded in 1997 by Justin Romero-Trigg and controls more than £100m in gross written premium. It employs more than 200 people across five regional offices.

David Heathfield (pictured), CEO of AssuredPartners UK and Ireland, said: “It’s not just the scale of Romero that sets it apart from its independent peers but the way in which the business has been structured to ensure clients receive an unrivalled level of service from placement to claims advocacy. Our largest acquisition to date, the addition of Romero to our growing group is a key milestone in our expansion plans and the combination of these two powerful brands will create better solutions for our clients and provide great opportunities for all staff.”

Romero-Trigo added: “AssuredPartners have met all our requirements in continuing our exceptional service to our clients. I am proud that after 26 years we have secured a like minded partner who will allow us to continue and reinforce our growth trajectory.”
