JMB IS ACQUIRED BY THE READ SHEPLEY GROUP – 27 September 2021

JMB Insurance Brokers, the trading name of Chariot Schemes Ltd, has been acquired by the Read Shepley insurance services group. JMB now joins a growing group which also includes the RS Risk Solutions broking business.

Group chairman, Stuart Shepley states: “We are delighted to welcome the JMB insurance broking team. As we continue to grow our mid-market commercial business, both organically and through acquisition, finalising the JMB purchase is another important milestone for us.”

Established in 2013 and based in Heathfield, JMB specialises in offering insurance broking services to professional drivers, such as, chauffeurs, and high net worth customers.

John Bryant, JMB director, comments: “The RS Risk Solutions team brings both leadership and experience to our business to support the further expansion in the proposition we offer our customers.”

The specialist focus of JMB complements the existing insurance broking and risk management activities of RS Risk Solutions which provides insurance solutions to companies, private businesses, female-led businesses and entrepreneurs.

Linda Read Shepley, managing director of RS Risk Solutions adds: “The successful growth of our insurance broking businesses continues in large part due to the high value our clients and customers place on our easily accessible advice and personal service.”
