TBIG ups stake in PHP Insurance to 80%

merger acquisition buy deal smoke mixing

The Broker Investment Group has increased its investment in Macclesfield-based chartered insurance broker PHP Insurance to 80%.

Directors Jullian Shawcross and Andy Tyrell have kept a shareholding in the £5.5m commercial gross written premium business.

The pair will continue in their current roles running the business day-to-day post the deal. 

PHP, which bought Bradshaw Bennett in 2019 and rebranded from Peter Hattersley & Partners in 2022, is now seeking more acquisitions in the North West region, having come further under the TBIG umbrella.

The investment is TBIG’s fifth deal of 2024.
