Profit Track 100

This Liverpool broker specialises in niche motor insurance, covering areas of the market it says have been avoided by traditional insurers, such as customers with motoring convictions, and taxi drivers. Profits hit £30.7m in 2018, and last year managing director Alan Keating, 53, and director Martin Gowing, 49, led a buyout backed by private equity firm Inflexion, which acquired a minority stake. With its call centre receiving high volumes of inquiries, it is directing customers to its online service.
