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”.
