This latest deal represents our 24th acquisition since we were established in 2001. It is also the first deal since we attracted new investment from ECI partners last month as part of our refinance plan. 

The John Ansell & Partners team have joined directors John Haber-Smith and Craig Smith at our office in the City of London and will work closely with our staff to drive business growth and opportunities.

Established in 1981, John Ansell & Partners is an independent insurance broker with particular strength in several areas of insurance. These include outdoor activity businesses, gym and fitness centres, wine and spirit trades and owner-occupied blocks of flats.

CLEAR's CEO, Howard Lickens, said: “John Ansell & Partners Limited is a great fit for our business. They will certainly enhance and grow our niche capabilities and help us deliver on our ambitious plans.”

John Haber-Smith Director of John Ansell & Partners Limited, added: “We’re delighted to be joining CLEAR Insurance at such an exciting time in their journey. CLEAR is the perfect home for our business and provides us with the best possible opportunity to grow our niche areas.”
