Hot on the heels of an acquisition last month, Aston Lark Ireland today announces it has agreed terms to acquire Revoclife Limited, trading as Gateway Insurance and Investments. The acquisition is subject to regulatory approval.
Gateway Insurance and Investments was established over 40 years ago in Athlone, County Westmeath, and specialises in the SME sector, with an extensive product offering for both commercial and personal customers, including general insurance and financial lines.
They are proud to have an excellent reputation for exemplary service in the market and a professional team with in-depth knowledge garnered over many years.
Robert Kennedy, Aston Lark Ireland CEO, said: “I am delighted to welcome Tom Fitzgerald and the Gateway team to Aston Lark. It is another fantastic addition to our growing business in the Midlands, further enhancing our capability in the region. Tom and the team’s client and people-first approach ensures an excellent cultural fit, and we know that by partnering together the business will continue to prosper and grow into the future, benefiting from being part of Aston Lark and Howden. We are keen to continue growing and acquiring like-minded brokers in Ireland as we look to deliver on our ambition to become Ireland’s leading independent insurance broker.”
Tom Fitzgerald, Managing Director of Gateway Insurance and Investments, added: “This is a fantastic development for our clients. In addition to all our existing services that are principally based around a highly personable service provided through dedicated and knowledgeable account handlers, we now also have access to global markets, a wider product range, and an experienced, similarly focused network of colleagues.
“We can assure our clients and staff that Gateway, in conjunction with its advisers, took great care in selecting our future partnership. It was only after exhaustive investigations that Aston Lark was selected. After over 40 years of servicing our clients, the future of Gateway is now secure.
“This is a proud day for us at Gateway, and I would like to compliment the Aston Lark team for a smooth and honourable transition of the Gateway business to Aston Lark. I would also like to thank our loyal clients and colleagues for their continued support over the years. It’s with complete confidence that I guarantee you will be well looked after by the Aston Lark family.”
