CISL welcomes Grayside

Its been a year in the making and we are excited to announce that, on Monday 17 April,  we went live with the acquisition of the general insurance division of Grayside Insurance Brokers, who have been established for more than 40 years.

Putting the customer first

First and foremost, we help businesses and individuals to get the right insurance whist providing the highest level of customer service. The principles of Grayside were the same and so it was always going to be a natural fit.  We are absolutely delighted to welcome the general insurance team from Grayside into the CiSL family and they are now based in our Banstead office and you can contact them on 01737 948104

The Importance of Growth

We have always grown organically then in 2010 we made our first acquisition of the general insurance clients of JPS Financial Services. We then continued steady growth until we made our second acquisition in 2016 of Walkham Insurance Services, based in Plymouth.

In 2020, just before Covid changed the world we live in, our growth continued as we agreed to look after the clients of Wealden Insurance Services based in Ashford, Kent. Despite the pandemic continuing to affect business across the world, this was followed in 2021 by the acquisition of BJIC based in Redhill.

Grayside is the fifth and probably the most poignant acquisition to date for our Founder, Stuart Allen, as it is where he begun his career in Insurance in June 1989.

So, what’s next?

Now that would be telling, but our journey is far from over…..

If you are an established Insurance Broker thinking about your exit plan over the next few years or so, or an Account Executive thinking about going it alone – call Stuart Allen in confidence on 01737 377254 for an informal chat about the alternative options we could offer you.
