Glasgow-based broker CCRS becomes the 27th current Brokerbility member.
Commercial broker CCRS was established over ten years ago. The firm specialises in charity and public sector, education, fuel distribution, construction, vehicle dismantlement, oil and gas, manufacturing and retail and food and drink sector insurance.
Neil Campbell, managing director CCRS said: “Brokerbility is clearly the best proposition to help grow our business whilst remaining staunchly independent.”
Ian Stutz, managing director of Brokerbility added: “Them [CCRS] joining continues our clear vision and commitment to supporting independent broking in the UK insurance market”.
Brokerbility members have typically handled around £15m in gross written premiums. It was not immediately possible to confirm how much GWP CCRS generates.
Even as member numbers have dwindled from the targeted 36, the network’s leadership has remained staunch in its defence of independent broking.
In September, Brokerbility chair Ashwin Mistry told Post: “Twelve brokers have sold over the past three years. We do have a very healthy pipeline. We had some announcements just before Christmas, brokers joining and coming on board. They won’t be of the size that are sold, but we are here to represent staunch independent brokers and Brokerbility will continue.
“We are making heavy in-roads into our trading division, which is driving the market for us. It’s just part of a larger picture. We are not worried about the pace of consolidation, we are just worried about the actions of the consolidators and the way they are behaving in insurance.
“I think that sends the wrong message to the market. You know, when you lose favour with one insurance market all together that is not in the public interest. So some of us are still dinosaurs and trying to raise the bar in terms of professionalism. And there are those that let us down, let everybody down.”
