The Ardonagh Group has announced its half-yearly results up to June 30. According to the London headquartered, international brokerage, income rose by 37% to £595 million (AU$1033 million) and adjusted EBITDA by 21% to £186 million (AU$323 million).
“These results reflect the strength of our business model with presence across multiple product lines, industries and geographies providing natural resilience and opportunity,” said CEO David Ross in a media release.
The firm’s organic growth was 7% for the six months, with Ardonagh Specialty recording organic growth of 12% and Ardonagh International exceeding 10%.
“In particular our organic growth shows what happens when independent businesses are connected through a shared vision of client focus and innovation, and with the support of long-term backers,” said Ross.
According to the release, Ardonagh Specialty and International contributed 44% of group income in the first six months of 2022, compared with 31% the previous year.
In December 2021, the brokerage – whose business is organised into the Ardonagh Advisory, Ardonagh Retail, Ardonagh Specialty and Ardonagh International operating segments – was valued at US$7.5 billion (AU$10.8 billion) as part of an equity investment led by long-term shareholders Madison Dearborn Partners and HPS Investment Partners.
The firm describes itself as the UK’s largest independent insurance distribution platform and a top 20 broker globally with a combined workforce of more than 9,000 people.
