The Group History

The Bollington Story

Take a look at the timeline below for a quick trip through the main events in our company story. It’s been quite a ride since 1973, and we’re still making history with new achievements and innovations, most recently the exciting merger with Wilsons Insurance Brokers in 2017.

You’ll see that mergers and acquisitions have played an important role in the development of today’s Bollington Wilson Group. This has been balanced by organic growth through product innovation and opening up new niche markets.

The Bollington Wilson Group is now one of the UK’s biggest independent insurance brokers. At Bollington our philosophy is simple: understand each client’s business and use that insight to provide thoughtful, innovative and individual solutions. The right cover at the right price, backed by outstanding customer service and expert risk management.

We have won numerous industry accolades over the past five decades, most recently in the 2017 UK Broker Awards. But the real measure of our success is the number of long and continuing relationships we have with clients throughout the UK.
