Jensten has completed the acquisition of Melville Burbage and Henry Seymour & Co following final regulatory approval.

The acquisitions will add 37 specialist professionals and three offices to Jensten, contributing over £20 million in gross written premiums (GWP).

Melville Burbage is known for providing commercial broking solutions and serves over 5,000 businesses and individuals. The company operates in various sectors, including construction, non-profit, and professional services, and brings expertise in the engineering and printing sectors, which are new areas for Jensten.

It was claimed that the acquisition would enhance Jensten’s local presence and its ability to serve clients across the Home Counties.

Henry Seymour & Co, on the other hand, operates under the Salon Gold brand, catering to salons, clinics, gyms, spas, and mobile or freelance therapists. It is a market leader in the hair and beauty industry and has a strong reputation in the trade and construction sector through its Tradesman Saver brand.

The completion of the deals marks a significant milestone in Jensten’s strategic regional expansion across the UK, according to CEO Alistair Hardie (pictured above). He welcomed both firms to the Jensten family and highlighted the brokerage’s expansion plans.

“Our ongoing efforts to expand our presence throughout the UK have brought us significant success,” he said. “The recent acquisition of Melville Burbage demonstrates our firm commitment to strategically broadening our expertise and capabilities, with a focus on establishing regional centres of excellence. The integration of Henry Seymour & Co signifies a significant leap forward in the growth of our schemes and affinities business, enhancing our capacity to offer market-leading specialist support to a diverse range of clients with very niche requirements.”

“We are pleased to formally welcome Melville Burbage and Henry Seymour & Co to the Jensten family,” he said.
