J&A Brokers set to grow with funding from the Greater Manchester Loan
The Greater Manchester Loan Fund (GMLF), managed by Maven, has made a £150,000 investment in the insurance brokerage J&A Brokers Ltd (J&A). The investment will be utilised by J&A to hire additional staff in business development roles to supplement the existing team and provide working capital to help take the business through its next growth phase.
Established in 2009, the business is led by John Green and Alan Jones, both of whom have considerable experience in the broker industry. In a relatively short time they have built up a strong client base with high retention rates based on the added value its full service delivers to its customers and the businesses ability to deal with a range of complex insurance requirements.
J&A specialises in providing bespoke commercial insurance solutions to businesses throughout the Greater Manchester and North West regions. Its professional brokering service offers a range of business critical products to its clients including Employee Liability, Business Interruption and Professional Indemnity insurance. J&A utilise their knowledge and considerable experience in the industry to deliver a high quality service and tailored solutions for a wide range of sectors, with their success built on their excellent reputation and strong repeat custom.
The company also benefits from being a member of the Willis Commercial Network. As the 4th largest broker in the world, its platform provides J&A with access to specialist schemes and products not normally available to smaller firms.
The industry in which J&A operates in is highly competitive with no single player dominating the market, so today’s funding from the GMLF will provide the business with additional capacity and a solid platform from which it can attract and facilitate new business.
Alex Rothwell, Investment Manager at Maven, said: “We are delighted to be able to support J&A Brokers and help them realise their ambitions for the business. John and the team have established a strong a growing business in a relatively short period of time, by delivering outstanding service to their customers. Finance from the GMLF will help J&A capitalise on the success they have had to date and we look forward to working with the company to help them grow further.”
John Green, Managing Director at J&A Brokers, added: “J&A Brokers is in an exciting phase of growth and this investment will allow us to develop the size of our business and continue to offer a market leading service for commercial businesses. We have come a long way in a short period of time, which is a testament to the dedication and quality of our staff and the service we provide to our customers. We are excited to be partnering with the Greater Manchester Loan Fund and utilising its investment to drive further business success.”
