According to Perks Insurance director, Eddie Bell, the acquisition would be also expected to enhance the company’s position in the context of the growing demand for more sophisticated insurance advisory services.

“For those individuals with significant financial or business interests, risk protection has to be a holistic strategy and our philosophy has always been to ensure that each client is equipped with the best policy to suit their individual needs,” he said.

“And we believe that our client first approach and ability to confidently advise our clients on complex insurance matters will be increasingly sought after as the industry shifts to a more transparent and consumer-focused model.”
