The company

Focused on niche products across the UK, Bollington and Wilsons operate complementary product lines in commercial and personal insurance. The newly created group focuses on UK expansion, creating a diversified platform from which to accelerate growth through scale and add-on acquisitions. The businesses continue to trade under their independent brands, building on their heritage and strong reputations.

The Inflexion difference

Capitalising on our track record in acquisitive growth and the fragmented nature of the insurance broker market, we have supported the business in its successful integration. We have also helped to digitally enhance the business and embed customer service excellence. Since our investment, the business has completed four add-on acquisitons.
