This London-based insurance group acquired Polish broker WDB and Barbon Insurance Group in November and December respectively — the latest of 35 acquisitions the company has made since it was founded in 2015 by chief executive Brendan McManus, 61. Private equity firm Carlyle Group invested an undisclosed sum in 2016, taking a 70% stake and helping to fund the acquisitions, which include a range of insurance businesses from legal to wholesalers, and care to recruitment. Sales, which represent commission, rose to £123.3m last year, and the group now employs more than 1,400 staff located in the UK, Ireland and Germany.
