CLEAR acquires Morrison Insurance Solutions in next phase of growth strategy

We are delighted to announce our acquisition of fellow Brokerbility member Morrison Insurance Solutions based in Alcester, Warwickshire. The CLEAR Group has doubled in size since 2016 and now handles £135m in premiums. Morrison is CLEAR’s largest acquisition and second location in the Midlands, where further expansion is planned.

Morrison Insurance Solutions is a chartered insurance broker, established in 1989.  The existing management and wider team will continue to be led by Managing Director, Ian Millard. The business boasts a strong reputation and capability in property owners insurance.  It is highly profitable with growing revenues of over £3m per annum.

Building on previous strategic acquisitions, MPW and Emson, the combined business will have a leading proposition for Property and Construction sectors, drawing together all the specialist policies needed from concept to completion and ongoing property management

Howard Lickens, CEO of CLEAR said: “We have been friends with the team at Morrisons for many years and are delighted that they have now joined us.  Ian and his team will now play an important part in our strategy as we continue to grow across our niche lines of business and in the region.  ECI’s support is enabling us to make further quality acquisitions of brokers that share our vision and culture.”

Ian Millard, Managing Director of Morrison Insurance Solutions said, “Becoming part of CLEAR is a great move for our staff and clients.  It was by far the best home for Morrison Insurance Solutions, where Howard and his team have built a successful business whilst retaining their values and independence as a broker.  Their expertise in property owners business and other niches will undoubtedly be a major boost as we seek to continue our success and indeed expand our presence in these areas”
