2nd March 2022 - Author: Pete Carvill

Specialist Risk Group (SRG) is to buy broker firm Hamilton Leigh.

The deal, which is pending regulatory approval, follows SRG’s acquisitions of KBIS, The Channel Partnership, David Codling, and Associates, amongst others.

In January 2022, SRG also acquired the London-based Special Risks team from Bridge Insurance.

The firm also made news on these pages in December when it launched MX Underwriting, a new unit comprising three specialist MGAs acquired by itself and LIME Insurance.

Lee Anderson, Group Deputy CEO at SRG said: “Hamilton Leigh is another fantastic addition to SRIS, providing new areas of deep specialism, supported by a team of genuine experts in the motor trade and technology sectors.”

He added: “I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Lee and Jill throughout the deal process and I look forward to working with them as we continue to grow and enhance our specialist capabilities.”

Meanwhile, SRG was itself acquired by private equity firm HGGC in December 2020.
