Mainstay Insurance MD and founder Richard Gorrill said: “We simply cannot afford to stand still in this rapidly evolving business world, and this acquisition brings additional opportunities not only for our clients but for our magnificent staff too.”

Aston Lark, which is currently backed by Goldman Sachs Asset Management, is soon to be acquired by Howden.

In October 2021, Howden brokered a deal to take over Aston Lark and form an entity with over £6bn of gross written premium (GWP).

The financial value of the deal was not revealed but media reports indicate that Howden paid $1.5bn for the acquisition.
