Insurance broker acquires Leicestershire firm

Aston Lark, the insurance broker currently backed by Goldman Sachs but soon to become part of Howden, has acquired Phoenix Healthcare (UK).

Phoenix Healthcare was established in 1996 in Oadby, Leicestershire and is a leading independent UK broker and adviser specialising in all aspects of corporate healthcare provision.

Peter Blanc, Aston Lark Group CEO, said: “When I first met Paul and Lee, it was clear that they share the same client service ethos as Aston Lark. We’re becoming a real powerhouse in Private Medical Insurance, and I’m delighted to welcome Paul, Lee and their team to the Aston Lark family.”

Paul Wright, founding director of Phoenix Healthcare, said: “Both Lee Shorter and I have over 35 years’ experience in the industry, and are delighted to choose Aston Lark as the long-term partner for our business. We firmly believe that they will be a great home for our staff and share our client-first approach to corporate healthcare broking.”

Lee Shorter, founding director of Phoenix Healthcare, added: “Becoming part of Aston Lark and having access to their resources and products will provide great opportunity for further helping our clients.”
