Rothbury acquires Ascot Insurance Brokers
Published Date: 30th Oct 2019 | Category: News
Ascot Insurance Brokers will become part of Rothbury Insurance Brokers from 1st November this year.
The Ascot partnership will double the size of Rothbury’s existing Northland branch, adding to the team four senior brokers and seven support staff.
Managing Director Roger Abel says, “Growing the business and expanding our presence around the country is part of our growth strategy, and building more capability within the Northland team is exciting.”
“Ascot is a great fit for us, they have operated in the Northland for the last 20 years and have very strong connections to the local community.”
Rothbury and Ascot are working to align the two businesses to ensure minimal disruption to clients. The business will continue to provide a range of insurance services including Commercial, Domestic and Rural.
Rothbury is now the third largest broking company in New Zealand. It remains a majority owned and controlled New Zealand company with more than 45,000 clients and almost 320 staff, operating in 20 locations around the country.
