Fish Insurance

The company

When we invested, Fish Insurance was a niche insurance broking business targeting the disabled and elderly sector, providing specialist schemes including employer’s liability, mobility equipment and motor insurance. The company was the only UK insurance broker to focus exclusively on this market across a range of schemes.

Growth strategy

The management team was keen to increase market share, expand the product range and target potential acquisitions.

The Inflexion difference

During our ownership there were a number of changes in the regulatory landscape under which Fish operated. In response to these challenges, we worked closely with the management team helping them to navigate their changing market and manage growth. The company launched new products within the disabled sector and together we investigated a number of potential bolt-on acquisitions.

Through our collaborative approach and support, we helped to prepare the business for sale to Capita Group Plc in January 2012.
