Robertson Low Insurances Limited and Wright Group Brokers Limited today announce the completion of their merger, along with their subsequent rebrand to Aston Lark Europe Limited, trading as Aston Lark Ireland.
This merger brings two of the very best brands in insurance together to provide clients with an even broader product coverage. Aston Lark Ireland boasts expertise across a wide range of specialisms, including manufacturing, life sciences, construction, motor trade, hospitality, property, haulage and financial services, tailoring insurance solutions for both businesses and individuals.
Continuing to operate out of the current offices in Dublin, Carlow, Portlaoise, Wexford and London, Aston Lark Ireland is headed up by CEO, Robert Kennedy.
Further to this, North County Brokers Limited and D O’Loughlin & Co Limited, both newly acquired Irish brokerages under the Aston Lark umbrella, are set to rebrand to Aston Lark Ireland later this year along with other imminent deals.
Robert Kennedy, Aston Lark Ireland CEO, said: “This is an exciting time for us as we complete our transition to Aston Lark Ireland. The launch of Aston Lark in the Irish market marks a significant milestone for our business as we establish our first branded offices.
“Bringing these businesses together under one name and brand ensures even greater strength for the benefit of our clients. It enhances our proposition and breadth of coverage in the market and opens up access for customers to an even broader range of products and services, supporting our ambitious growth plans in Ireland.
“We are well on our way to realising our ambition to become Ireland’s leading independent insurance broker, delivering for our clients with care, passion, integrity and expertise.”
Peter Blanc, Group CEO of Aston Lark, added: “I’m really proud of what Rob Kennedy and Mark Nolan (Aston Lark Ireland CFO) are building as they become the broker of choice in Ireland. This rebrand marks the start of an ambitious growth plan as we look forward to welcoming other high quality brokers into the group. Aston Lark in the UK will support our Irish colleagues with placement into the London market where helpful, leveraging the strength of the combined business which now controls around £750m/€860m of premium”
