Lark announces the purchase of HMT Insurance Brokers

Lark (Group) Limited is pleased to announce the purchase of HMT Insurance Brokers Limited from its founder and proprietor, Howard Thompson. HMT, based in Hinchley Wood, Surrey, provides insurance advice to businesses operating in post-conflict territories such as Bosnia, Iraq, Afghanistan and other high security areas and is a market leader in looking after clients undertaking mine clearance and ordnance disposal work.

Graham Lark, Chairman of Lark, said “We are delighted to add HMT to our existing operations. It is a fantastic niche business and so a great fit with our strategic aim to broaden our range of capabilities.

"This is our first significant acquisition since the management buyout from Groupama last year and we are pleased to welcome all the HMT team to Lark. They are well respected in their market segment and share our belief that there is considerable opportunity for insurance brokers who provide clients with expertise, sound advice and excellent service. Everyone at Lark is very much looking forward to working with them. ”

Following the acquisition Lark, which provides insurance broking services to a broad cross-section of corporate and personal clients, will have annual revenues of around £25.0 million and employ just over 300 staff in 7 offices across London and the South East of England.
