Bollington Insurance acquired by Gallagher: what this means for you

As announced in early 2021, Bollington Insurance has been acquired by Gallagher, a leading global insurance broking, risk management and consulting services company operating across 150 countries.

From October 2021, the Bollington Insurance brand will be retired, and the Gallagher name proudly displayed at our offices.

How will this benefit you?

Bollington Insurance has a long history of innovation and excellence, growing as a business to deliver the support and choice our clients deserve. The acquisition of Bollington by Gallagher takes that support to the next level.

Here are five good reasons why Bollington's acquisition by Gallagher will further improve the service we can offer to you.

  1. A personal, local service. Bollington already has colleagues spanning the whole of the country. Now we are part of Gallagher, our offices join a network of 50+ Gallagher offices across the UK and over 30,000 colleagues globally. So, we can provide even better local support to our clients – wherever you are based. 
  1. The same people, backed with global resources. Many of our clients will notice no change to the people who look after your business. We will continue to provide the same friendly, professional service that is tailored to your needs. It's the same people you trust to look after your needs, backed with a global organisation's additional expertise and resources.
  1. Economies of scale. Gallagher is one of the largest insurance brokers in the world. While Bollington was a Top 100 UK broker, the scale of Gallagher means our clients are likely to see increased choice and buying power.
  1. Stability and continuity of service standards. For over 45 years, Bollington Insurance has made good relations with our clients a top priority. Gallagher has an even longer history, dating back to 1927, and shares this ethos. Gallagher firmly believes in maintaining lifelong partnerships with clients, so you can be confident that we're here for you for years to come.
  1. Ethical working.  As the only broker recognised in Ethisphere Institute's Most Ethical Companies in 2021, you can be confident that Gallagher always seeks to do business the right way, partnering with you to secure the most appropriate insurance cover for your unique needs.

Bollington has always put our clients at the heart of decision-making. With Gallagher, that partnership will flourish, with a world-class service and consultancy proposition. We will keep you engaged and help you make informed decisions so you can face the future with confidence.

Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to progressing our partnership with you.
