Insurance business NFP expands with acquisition

A Birmingham insurance business has expanded its footprint by acquiring a West Midlands consultancy. NFP has bought out Hagley-based Direct Safety Solutions in an undisclosed deal.

The acquisition will allow NFP to integrate bespoke health and safety services within its existing commercial insurance, employee benefits and HR offer.

NFP is based in the city's Jewellery Quarter and is a property and casualty broker, benefits and HR consultancy, wealth manager and retirement planning adviser. It also has offices in Bromsgrove, north Staffordshire and Berkshire.

Direct Safety Solutions is a health and safety consultancy, working with clients in a wide variety of sectors to provide audits, provision of policies and management systems, risk assessments, training and ongoing support packages.

Matt Pawley, president of NFP in Europe, said: "We are constantly looking for opportunities to expand our offerings and Direct Safety Solutions adds a crucial full-service offering to help clients manage their health and safety risks in a sensible, cost-effective way.

"This enhances our ability to meet the evolving needs of our growing portfolio of customers through a diverse suite of resources."

Jonathan Williams, managing director at Direct Safety Solutions, will join NFP's leadership team in the UK.

He said: "We are delighted to join the NFP family and its colleagues who share our commitment to providing client-focused solutions.

"This fabulous opportunity also enables our clients to access NFP's global network of integrated insurance, HR, benefits, wealth management and retirement solutions, which will help them meet their holistic business needs."
