Aston Lark has acquired Irish broker Robertson Low, making the Dublin-based company its first international purchase as the group looks beyond the UK.

In addition to its offices in Dublin, the broker has offices in Portlaoise and London, and claims to be Ireland’s first fully-licenced Lloyd’s broker.

It has a team of 40 staff, led by directors Andrew Low, Mark Boland, Mark Whelan and Denise Behan.

The acquisition is subject to approval by the Central Bank of Ireland.

Peter Blanc, pictured, Aston Lark CEO, said: “We’re delighted to welcome the Robertson Low team into the Aston Lark family. We will look to further expand our presence in Ireland with acquisitions over the coming years to cement Robertson Low’s position as one of the leading brokers in Ireland.”

Andrew Low, Robertson Low’s managing director, said: “We’re very excited by the plans we have for the business over the coming years. We can further develop our wholesale offering for our broker clients in Ireland and look to grow locally through targeted acquisitions. We look forward to meeting all of our new colleagues across Aston Lark.”
