The merger between Robertson Low Insurances Limited and Wright Group Brokers Limited has crossed the finish line, and the combined brokerage is now known as Aston Lark Europe Limited.

Trading as Aston Lark Ireland, the rebranded entity is led by chief executive Robert Kennedy (pictured) and continues to operate out of offices in Dublin, Carlow, Portlaoise, Wexford, and London. Robertson Low and Wright Insurance Brokers were both snapped up in 2019.

Recent swoops North County Brokers Limited and D O’Loughlin & Co Limited, meanwhile, will also be rebranding to Aston Lark Ireland later this year.

“This is an exciting time for us as we complete our transition to Aston Lark Ireland,” commented Kennedy, who came onboard in March 2020. “The launch of Aston Lark in the Irish market marks a significant milestone for our business as we establish our first branded offices.

“Bringing these businesses together under one name and brand ensures even greater strength for the benefit of our clients. It enhances our proposition and breadth of coverage in the market and opens up access for customers to an even broader range of products and services, supporting our ambitious growth plans in Ireland.”

The Irish chief went on to assert that they are well on their way to becoming the country’s leading independent insurance broker, working towards this ambition while serving clients not only with expertise and integrity but also with passion and care.   

“I’m really proud of what Rob Kennedy and [Aston Lark Ireland chief financial officer] Mark Nolan are building, as they become the broker of choice in Ireland,” added group CEO Peter Blanc. “This rebrand marks the start of an ambitious growth plan as we look forward to welcoming other high-quality brokers into the group.

“Aston Lark in the UK will support our Irish colleagues with placement into the London market where helpful, leveraging the strength of the combined business which now controls around £750 million / €860 million of premium.”
