Higos Acquires Christchurch BrokerMonday 9th December 2013
Higos Insurance Services has laid the foundation for further expansion across the South West following the acquisition of John Morgan Insurance Consultants in Christchurch, Dorset. The acquisition increases our presence in the South West to 19 branches and 21 offices, with more than 240 staff employed across the region.
Ian Gosden, Managing Director of Higos Insurance Services, commented: “This is part of a step change for us. We have plans to grow the business much further in the next five years and this recent acquisition is part of that future.” In addition to the acquisition of John Morgan Insurance Consultants we are also investing heavily in new systems across our network and have recently upgraded two key offices. Firstly, our Northbourne branch in Bournemouth has relocated to a key high street location in Ferndown, strengthening our presence in the area. This follows the recent relocation of our Calne branch to a more prominent premises on the high street earlier in the year.
Mr Gosden says “The changes reflect my philosophy that the high street is alive and thriving for insurance brokers. We are significantly expanding our business and growing our book of gross written premiums across both commercial and personal lines.”
