Higos announces acquisition of business insurance brokers

One professional indemnity insurance services firm recently announced its acquisition of a Crewkerne-based business insurance broker in Somerset.

Higos Insurance has added Vaughan Insurance Brokers to their portfolio of commercial insurance staff in a move designed to expand the reach and scope of the insurance services provider.  Vaughan has more than 3 decades of operational experience in the area and has moved to its new offices at 9 Market Square, now trading under the name of Vaughan Insurance Services.

Ian Gosden, managing director and founder of Higos, remarked that the company’s growth strategy throughout the South West includes taking on locally respected and recognised firms.  Mr Gosden expressed delight to welcome Vaughan to the Higos family and that he was looking forward to the full integration of their business into the firm’s modern broking model, which combines local, personal service with the efficiencies of the latest business practices and cutting edge technology.

Launched in Somerset in 1990, Higos has since grown to hire more than 200 staff across it’s 17 South West offices.  The new Vaughan branch is the 17th such office.

Both current branch manager Natalie Chantry and her support staff Mandy Garret will continue to operate the Vaughan branch for Higos.  In addition, three year Higos veteran Karla Genge will be joining Ms Chantry and Ms Garret in helping to operate the Crewkerne branch.

One of the largest South West independent intermediaries that specialises in the provision of general insurance cover, Higos Insurance Services Ltd offers completely independent advice since it is not tied directly to any one insurance company.  The company has access to several leading insurers including AZA, Zurich, and Aviva, which allows it to provide the most diverse cover to its clients whilst keeping its prices competitive.
