Cheshire based Dow Schofield Watts Corporate Finance acted for Coulter Hurst and Company Limited on their sale to leading independent insurance broker, Stackhouse Poland.

Founded in 1999, Liverpool-based Coulter Hurst is an insurance and risk management practice which specialises in the commercial property and professional insurance sectors. Stackhouse Poland’s acquisition of Coulter Hurst will see their operating footprint extend from being a predominantly London and South East broker to the North West and takes the Group close to the £100m GWP barrier.

Charlie Hurst, Managing Director of Coulter Hurst said, “I have known Jeremy Cary for  over  25  years,  we  even  talked  about  working  together  in  the  1980s.  More recently, we have been  able to progress such ambitions and I am thrilled with the opportunities our new partnership brings for the benefit of our clients as we continue to  grow  our  business.  It  is  important  that  we  joined  a  firm  with  a  similar  cultural service  ethic  and  Stackhouse  Poland  has  a  fantastic  reputation  for  high  service standards so it is a perfect fit for the business moving forward”.
