We are delighted to announce that from the 5th November 2021, SMP Healthcare Ltd has become part of the Ascend Broking Group.
Based in Chelmsford, Essex and established in 2014, the team at SMP Healthcare provide access to a wide range of Health and Protection insurance policies on both personal and company schemes and have built a first class service-orientated business.
With SMP joining Ascend, we will be able to extend this expert service to all our customers.
David Beswick, Commercial Director at Ascend commented, “I am delighted to welcome Lianne and the team to Ascend. The business is a perfect fit for our commercial and high net worth clients and the way SMP do things mirrors our own. We have known each other a long time and it is a logical fit for two businesses that are so close geographically, and can add value to each other as our clients come together. We see many synergies across our client base and by welcoming SMP Healthcare, we take another major step in our short history.”
Lianne Harrington, Director at SMP Healthcare added, “We share a joint vision of providing all clients with access to professional and expert advice, and solutions for the whole suite of insurance policies and markets moving forward. Remaining independent gives our clients flexibility and choice, without prejudice, for both now and the future.“
Matthew Collins, Managing Director at Ascend commented, “I have known Lianne for over five years, we have always shared the same outlook on providing an advice-driven client-first oriented service and see this as a perfect strategic fit to enhance our customers’ access to market-leading products.
We aim to grow the group’s healthcare product offering and will be investing in SMP to ensure we continue to be at the forefront of advice driven personal service.”
