Ex Jelf boss Phil Barton and former Bluefin CEO Stuart Reid have teamed up to launch insurance advisory business Partners&.

Five broking businesses have come together to form the platform of the new enterprise - MRIB and Independents, La Playa, CGI and Versatile.

The combination creates a team of 140 people, based in nine offices across the South East, Midlands and South West. The broker controls approximately £65m in gross written premiums.
