Where have we come from and where are we heading?

Since our formation in 2015, we’ve been on a mission to create a leading position in the provision of specialist insurance solutions across the UK market and beyond.

It’s been an exciting journey as we’ve remained focused and committed to delivering everything that we set out to achieve. We’ve been growing rapidly through acquisition, and by employing outstanding individuals with a wealth of knowledge and experience across the insurance market.

By bringing together companies and individuals recognised as leaders across a range of specialist markets, PIB can draw on their vast expertise and insights which in turn enables customers to enjoy the highest levels of service.

That journey has led to PIB Group today being a highly diversified insurance distribution consolidator focusing on specialist commercial lines and non-standard personal lines products with deep expertise across both direct and B2B distribution through its broking, underwriting and network divisions.

In 2021, PIB Group secured further investment from Apax partners (the ‘Apax Funds’), and re-investment from PIB’s existing investor since 2015, The Carlyle Group. The investments enable PIB to continue our ambitious growth plans.

Our goal is evolving with international aspirations

PIB’s formation reflected the belief that the disappearance of many mid-sized brokers created the opportunity for a new broker, focused on the needs of clients, using a specialist approach and with close client relationships at its core.

Our goal at the outset was to create the UK’s leading independent diversified specialist insurance intermediary, and a business that can provide a genuinely credible alternative to the larger and more established intermediaries.

Since then, that goal has evolved to include more international aspirations by targeting specialist businesses and teams in Europe and beyond, which are complementary to and will benefit from the products and expertise elsewhere within the Group.
