Hamilton Fraser | Global Risk Partners

finnCap Cavendish, part of financial advisory firm, finnCap Group plc, is pleased to have advised on the sale of Hamilton Fraser, a high growth insurance broker, to Global Risk Partners (GRP), one of the UK’s largest independent insurance intermediaries, for an undisclosed sum.

Based in Borehamwood and founded in 1996, Hamilton Fraser provides specialist insurance and risk management for the private rented property sector and the cosmetic and aesthetic practitioners industry, with a reach across the UK.

Since its inception, the business has grown substantially, becoming a trusted and highly profitable risk management solutions business serving its customers, including the UK government.

Post completion, which is subject to regulatory approval, the broker will become part of GRP’s high growth digital division and all of its employees, including Co-Founder and CEO Eddie Hooker, will be integrated into the GRP group.

The deal was led by Andrew Jeffs, Partner and Ben Goldring, Head of Financial Services at finnCap Cavendish.

Andrew Jeffs, commented:

It has been a real pleasure working with Eddie and his team at Hamilton Fraser. The business they have built is the result of more than 25 years of innovation, effort and investment.  We are glad to see them achieve a successful exit for the other shareholders and move onto the next chapter of growth with GRP.

Ben, commented:

The M&A market for insurance distribution continues to consolidate. Founders looking to exit need to articulate clearly what makes their business special. For Eddie and the Hamilton Fraser team this has been the way they have consistently anticipated market evolutions and created bespoke risk protection products to meet those emerging regulatory and risk requirements. I look forward to seeing Hamilton Fraser flourish in their new partnership with GRP.
