Insurance intermediaries

We understand that insurance broking is a people business, and that its true value lies in this intangible asset, not in the balance sheet. It’s this understanding that differentiates us from some other banks.

Growth strategies through acquisition can be unlocked by understanding your business and its retention rates delivering cash generation. Our experts are on hand to offer dedicated support and help make your plans a reality.

Opportunities for regional firms

Many regional brokers see opportunities in selling to a national operator, while others recognise that this could adversely affect client and staff relationships.

Those that wish to retain control of their business see greater opportunities in acquiring smaller businesses themselves. An acquisition strategy can help to diversify your existing business streams, and make your business more attractive when you consider your own exit route in years to come. This is where Yorkshire Bank can help.

How can we help

We can structure a debt facility to mirror the upfront and deferred consideration payments — an arrangement that is bespoke to your business. This is often preferable to equity funding which generally means relinquishing some control.

What sets us apart?

We understand the market and how your business differs from the large national operators. The strength of client relationships, potentially dating back many years, is the foundation for your future business cash flows.

With the sector likely to see continued consolidation you’ll be aware of opportunities in your own area and may want to work with a bank that sees strong customer relationships as the foundation of their business. Our experts are on hand to offer dedicated support and help make your plans a reality.
